CSP 4-Part Series - Jewish Readings of Modern Movies and TV
3 of 4: Transparent – What Makes Ritual and Faith Meaningful?
With Rabbi Dr. Raphael Zarum, live from the U.K.
Dedicated in honor of Rabbi Charlie Savenor
The award-winning Transparent comedy-drama from Amazon Studios revolves around a Los Angeles Jewish family following the discovery that the father is transgender. In the final season they visit Israel, with hilarious and shocking results. This thoughtful show addresses challenging modern issues such as fluid sexuality, religious faith, meaningful ritual, family loyalty, and even Israel’s security barrier. In this session we will analyze a number of key clips from the show’s four seasons in order to reflect on our own Jewish journeys and how we can make our faith more meaningful.
