JWA co-sponsors the Boston Jewish Film Festival’s screening of Working Woman, an Israeli film tackling harassment in the workplace and women’s empowerment. The film tells the story of Orna, who becomes the main breadwinner for her family but at the cost of her workplace safety and self-respect. Director Michal Aviad’s (Dimona Twist, BJFF 2017) beautifully shot film tells a poignant story that echoes loudly in the era of #MeToo.
