93Queen

Film Screening and talk with Yoetzet Hadassa Klein

7.30pm Thursday 5 March

Set in the Hasidic Jewish enclave of Borough Park, Brooklyn, 93Queen follows a group of tenacious women who are testing the limits of patriarchal control in their insular community.

In defiance of Hasidic leaders, the women create Ezras Nashim, the first all-female volunteer ambulance corps in New York City. This action seems radical, but it is in service of a very traditional goal: to preserve women’s modesty. Led by the indefatigable Rachel “Ruchie” Freier, these determined women overcome substantial opposition and even sabotage to found Ezras Nashim.

With unprecedented access, 93Queen shows the contradictions, tensions and triumphs of this movement. The Ezras Nashim volunteers remain committed to their faith and their

primary roles as wives and mothers, even as they change their community from within. Symbolic of that change is Ruchie Freier, who becomes the first Hasidic woman judge.

After our film screening we will meet with Yoetzet Hadassa Klein from Nishmat to hear about the evolving role of women in orthodox communities and the work of Nishmat with women in these communities.

We are showing this file to mark International Women’s Day, which is on Sunday 8 March.
