Event Description:

Watch the "Road to Eden" and reflect with filmmaker Doug Passon on the connection between homelessness, spirituality, and holiday of Sukkot.

“Road to Eden” documents beloved Jewish musician Dan Nichols' journey through the Deep South to celebrate the Jewish festival of Sukkot and explore its deeper meaning and relevance to modern Jewish life. On the road, he confronts issues of homelessness, immigration, interfaith relations, environmental concerns, Middle East turmoil, and civil rights, reminding us all that we are still trying to reach the "Promised Land" together.
The Indianapolis Hebrew Congregation and its partners invite people from all religious backgrounds to view the film and then engage in a Q&A session with filmmaker Doug Passon and musician Dan Nichols (attendance TBD). Join in on this dialogue about our obligations to secure a home for our neighbors globally and locally.   
Walk-ins welcome. RSVPs requested.

Presented by Indianapolis Hebrew Congregation with promotional support from the Coalition for Homelessness Intervention and Prevention.
