"Shalom y'all"

A few weeks back, Leah asked if I'd be interested in joining her at a the Calgary Jewish Film Festival. I said sure and today Leah, Dave and I went to see a movie called Shalom Y'all. It's about being a Jew in the Deep South of the U.S. It was both funny and enlightening.

Afterwards we had a good conversation about the movie, and though there were many points we did not necessarily agree on, we did agree that often we are limited by our own experiences and ignorance. No matter how far we travel, or how much we study, there are some things that remain outside our scope of what we know. Every now and then it's worthwhile to venture out and learn about something new.
