Temple Beth El of Northern Westchester will screen the award-winning documentary, Race to Nowhere on Sunday, September 18,3:00 – 5:30 pm in the temple’s new Social Hall. The movie, by Vicki Abeles, focuses on high-pressure school cultures prevalent in high-achieving school systems.
The event is being sponsored by the Interfaith Alliance on Youth Issues, a group that represents a wide range of synagogues, churches and mosques in northern Westchester.
A panel discussion to follow will probe questions such as: Can our faith guide us towards redefining the meaning of success? How can our spiritual beliefs and religious teachings help parents and children regain balance in their lives? How can we utilize spirituality as well as religious teachings and values to help us cope with these issues?
The panel discussion will be moderated by Rabbi Geoffrey A. Mitelman of Temple Beth El. Panelists will include Dr. Lyn McKay, Chappaqua Superintendent of Schools and Pastor Paul Alcorn of Bedford Presbyterian Church. For more info, visit www.bethelnw.org.
