Film Discussion: They Ain’t Ready for Me

Thursday, April 15, 2021 3 Iyar 5781

7:00 PM - 8:00 PM

Join Rabbi Silk on Thursday, April 15 at 7:00 p.m. as she discusses the documentary film, entitled They Ain't Ready for Me alongside the film's director Brad Rothschild.

They Ain’t Ready For Me is the story of Tamar Manasseh, an African American rabbinical student who is leading the fight against senseless killings on the south side of Chicago. The film explores the challenges and motivations of this fearless community leader as she works to prevent more people from being killed by gun violence. Tamar's complex identity and magnetic personality combine to make her a force to be reckoned with, and she hasn't even hit her stride yet.

Tamar and the organization she founded, MASK (Mothers and Men Against Senseless Killings), are proving all of the naysayers wrong; something can be done, the situation is not hopeless. Tamar is trying to restore the traditional role of the family back into the community. With just her presence on the block, talking, joking and hanging out, she is making the forgotten people of the neighborhood believe that there are people who care whether they live or die in the Englewood section of Chicago.

Please register by Thursday, April 8 to receive a password protected link to view the film in the days leading up to the program. A subsequent Zoom link for the discussion will also be sent to registrants.
