Film Screening: Regina

A free film screening at The Wiener Library

The daughter of an Orthodox Jewish peddler, Regina Jonas (1902-1944) made history by becoming the world's first woman rabbi. Constructed from a single surviving photograph, using archival materials, this poetic documentary of devotion, faith, and struggle is set in 1930s Berlin when Orthodox Jewish laws prevented women from ordination. It is perhaps fate’s irony that Regina officially receives her synagogue commissions just as her rabbi colleagues are emigrating or arrested. At age 37, she met the love of her life, Rabbi Josef Norden; only their love letters survived the Holocaust.

Regina won the Lia Award for Jewish Heritage at 30th Jerusalem Film Festival in 2013.
