Emanuel Synagogue, Plus61J and Mazon host a screening of acclaimed documentary ‘Breaking Bread’

Wednesday, 23 June, 2021 • 13 Tammuz 5781

Emanuel Synagogue together with Plus61J and Mazon are hosting a screening of Breaking Bread, plus a post-screening cooking demonstration with acclaimed Chef Michael Rantissi on Wednesday 23 June.

In a film which SBS Australia said was “feel good – and extremely appetizing…A mouth-watering film”, Breaking Bread shows how Dr. Nof Atamna-Ismaeel is on a quest to make social change through food. Breaking Bread is a film about hope, synergy and mouth-watering fare. It’s a film that illustrates what happens when people focus on the person, rather than their religion; on the public, rather than the politicians.

In what promises to be a nourishing evening from every perspective, you will be able to enjoy a film, a nosh, learn something new and make a positive social impact all in the one event.
