Celia Lowenstein’s visually audacious tour of the 3,000-year history of the Jewish Diaspora is told through a globetrotting escapade of Jewish spaces of worship. If synagogues could speak, they would tell the story embodied in Sacred Spaces – the architectural and spiritual tale of a people’s beliefs, perseverance, and diversity.

Starting in Jerusalem and winding through Tunisia, Venice, Cordoba, and even Elkins Park, Pennsylvania (where Frank Lloyd Wright teamed up with Rabbi Mortimer Cohen), Sacred Spaces employs enlightening interviews, stunning drone footage, and a spirited intellectual rigor to examine Jewish history from a spectacularly original perspective.

Screenings followed by a conversation with filmmaker Celia Lowenstein.
