Spokane Jewish Cultural Film Festival: “Shoelaces”

Sunday, January 27, 2019 @ 2:00 pm - 4:00 pm

$7 – $10

“Shoelaces” tells the story of a complicated relationship between an aging father and his special-needs son, whom he abandoned while he was still a young boy. Reuben’s kidneys are failing and his son, Gadi, wants to donate one of his own to help save his father’s life. However, the transplant committee objects to the procedure, claiming that Reuben, as Gadi’s sole legal guardian, does not have the right to authorize such an invasive procedure. Through the film’s portrayal of love, rejection, and co-dependency, it sheds light on the importance of human life and human connection.

Last week’s show of unity at the U.N. was unprecedented.

Gay pride flags should not be banned in classrooms

I agree that in general, classrooms shouldn't be a place to push a particular political ideology or campaign. However, simply being gay in school isn't a political campaign. It's a recognition that a teacher's classroom is a safe place for gay kids. If that's political to you, even if the teacher never once mentions a political candidate, you've probably got a problem with the existence of the gay kids.
