Classrooms Without Borders, in partnership with Rodef Shalom Congregation, is excited to offer the opportunity to watch the film “Black Honey, The Life and Poetry of Avraham Sutzkever” and engage in a post-film discussion with the film producer, Yair Qedar, and CWB scholar Avi Ben Hur.
As long as Abraham Sutskever lived, he wouldn’t let a film about his life be made. Today, eight years after his passing, Black Honey tells the incredible story of the greatest Yiddish poet of modern times. The man who led the Paper Brigade underground movement that saved Jewish manuscripts from the Nazis, survived the WWII due to Stalin sending him a private rescue plane, testified in the Nuremberg Trials, and immigrated to Israel in 1947 where he led Yiddish culture, while writing in astonishing vitality.
