Show your ink and enjoy a festive drink as Next@19thâ€™s New Sanhedrin program offers a heated debate on the controversial topic of body modification within the Jewish culture and practice.
Next@19th invites producer Andy Abrams to present excerpts from his anticipated documentary â€œTattoo Jew,â€ highlighting Jewish-themed tattoos as permanent expressions of cultural connection and identity within the Jewish culture. Abramsâ€™ viewpoint reads between the lines of what it means to be Jewish in the midst of a pop culture society.
A New Sanhedrin-style discussion will follow the enlightening preview, complete with an array of views to offer a fresh perspective on topics like religious prohibition and family disapproval of personal expression within the Jewish community. Modeled after the original ancient Sanhedrin which legislated Jewish law, ideas are introduced by central facilitators and put to audiences for debate. Tickets can be purchased at www.brownpapertickets.com.
