The Girl From Foreign
Tickets for lunch have sold out - tickets currently on sale are for the film, concert, and presentation ONLY.

Sadia Shepard, daughter of a Christian/American father and Muslim/Pakistani mother, understood the complexities of a multi-cultural household.  What made her melting pot overflow was the discovery that her grandmother had been born Jewish.  Compelled to reclaim her roots, she travelled to India to discover the history of the Jews of India, believed to be descendents of the lost tribes of Israel.  She brings this journey to life in her memoir The Girl from Foreign and her film In Search of the Bene Israel, which she presents at the festival.  Music by the Lenny Seidman Tabla Choir and a buffet by Ekta Indian Restaurant evoke the tastes and sounds of her unusual history.
