Once again, I'd appreciate it if you could forward this email to anyone else
who might be interested in this information. And here's a link to the Facebook group for the film.
Last time, I sent out a small thumbnail of the poster for the film, and several people asked if I could include a larger picture. Here goes:
This past Sunday, Aug. 3 (2nd of Av), there were two screenings of the film.
At Young Israel of Teaneck, NJ, Rabbi Aharon Rakeffet-Rothkoff, student and biographer of the Rav, spoke about his involvement as Senior Advisor on the film.
I attended the screening at Lido Beach Synagogue, on Long Island, on a beautiful day. Rabbi Daniel Mehlman, rabbi of the synagogue, spoke about his experience as a student of the Rav in the 1960s. The crowd was enthusiastic and almost all the seats were taken!
If you have an interesting experience or story connected to the film, please don't hesitate to share them with me. You can simply reply to this email (don't worry, it will only go to me).
