Join us for Selichot, featuring a screening of the Academy Award-Winning short film – The Man Who Planted Trees.
One of the most moving and visually beautiful animations ever made, The Man Who Planted Trees tells the story of a solitary shepherd who patiently plants and nurtures a forest of thousands of trees, single-handedly transforming his arid surroundings into a thriving oasis. Undeterred by two World Wars, and without any thought of personal reward, the shepherd tirelessly sows his seeds and acorns with the greatest care. As if by magic, a landscape that seemed condemned grows green again.
A film of great beauty and hope, this story is a remarkable parable for all ages to the power of one person and their ability to make a difference in the world. As such, it is the perfect film to see as we enter the High Holy Days!
Masterfully narrated by the Christopher Plummer, The Man Who Planted Trees won the Academy Award for Best Animated Short in 1988.
Join us for this inspiring evening of music, prayer and inspiration!
