The Toronto Jewish Film Foundation has teamed up with No Silence on Race to curate a selection of films. From India to Ghana, Uganda to Iraq, Israel to North America, the films reflect Jewish life from around the world. The list also includes films that delve into the complexities of race, the politics of recognition and social unrest faced by Jews and non-Jews within the Jewish Diaspora and in Israel.

All the films are accessible for FREE on J-Flix from anywhere in Canada. (make sure to sign up at j-flix.com if you don’t have an account yet)

Join us for the launch of this partnership with a special screening and Zoom Panel Discussion as Toronto filmmaker Gabrielle Zilkha revisits her critically-acclaimed 2016 documentary Doing Jewish: A Story from Ghana.

Watch Now

While working on Ghana, Gabrielle Zilkha discovers the vibrant Sefwi Jewish community. She brings us along on her journey to better understand what it means to belong to the Jewish people and why some people’s Judaism is questioned while that of others is taken at face value.

Zoom Panel Discussion February 7 at 1pm – Access Zoom HERE

The panel will be discussing the film in light of current discourse and movement to achieve an anti-racist, equitable and inclusive global Jewish community.
