Bozeman’s first Jewish Film Festival is a cinematic exploration of Jewish experience — Jewish culture and history, life in Israel, and the work of Jewish artists — particularly where these stories intersect with other communities. Screening award-winning, newly released films, BJFF seeks to use the power of film to both entertain and educate while challenging conventional perspectives on complex issues facing the Jewish and global communities. Screening 7 Wednesdays throughout the Summer at 7PM — Procrastinator Theater in MSU Strand Union Bldg. FREE Admission. August 5th – Run Boy Run.

“TORN” – Israel, 2011 – Can one be a Catholic priest and an Observant Jew at the same time?
12 years after he was ordained as a Polish Catholic priest, Romuald Waszkinel discovers that he was born to Jewish parents, and that his name was Jacob Weksler.

The film follows his amazing journey: from conducting mass in a church in Poland to life as an observant Jew in a religious kibbutz in Israel. Romuald is torn between two identities, between being Romuald Waszkinel or Jacob Weksler. He is unable to renounce either, and therefore is rejected by both religions and the state of Israel. He is required to choose.
