A warm, cohesive congregation of Sephardic Jews suffers an accident during a bar mitzvah: the women’s balcony collapses, the rebbetzin is injured, and the beloved rabbi can’t cope.
Enter Rabbi David, a religious fundamentalist who offers to help the congregation. But there is a price for his help. The men are captivated; however, the women are enraged and take matters into their own hands. Ultimately congregational peace is restored.
A rousing, good-humored tale of women speaking truth to power, The Women’s Balcony is at once rebellious and respectful in spirit.
