Ohel’s film on divorce draws large Teaneck crowd

Many community members came to the northern New Jersey screening of Ohel’s groundbreaking new film, “Rising from Divorce,” at Congregation Bnai Yeshurun in Teaneck.

Through the film, Ohel aims to educate the community about the impact of divorce, and the specific roles that the wider community, including rabbis, community leaders, and educators, can play to help ensure that both parents and children can thrive.

Rabbi Steven Pruzansky of Congregation Bnai Yeshurun in Teaneck was part of a panel of educators and mental health professionals who answered questions after the film.

Rabbi Jeremy Donath, Ohel’s Bergen County community coordinator, said, “As reflective of the size of the audience, and the nature of the questions, the issues are very real and affect everyone, and Ohel hopes the film will be a catalyst for much necessitated discourse and much belated action in every community, as it is incumbent upon us all to provide help where we can.”
