There is a little cafe on the same block called Bread Soul. IF anyone feels like it we can stop for a snack after the film and discuss the movie (in Hebrew). Here is the link to their menu: http://www.menupix.com/menudirectory/menu.php?id=300421
Synopsis: Fill The Void tells the story of an Orthodox Hassidic family from Tel Aviv. (In Hebrew with English subtitles.)
Eighteen-year-old Shira is the youngest daughter of the family. She is about to be married off to a promising young man of the same age and background. It is a dream-come-true, and Shira feels prepared and excited.
On Purim, her twenty-eight-year-old sister, Esther, dies while giving birth to her first child. The pain and grief that overwhelm the family postpone Shira's promised match.
Everything changes when an offer is proposed to match Yochay - the late Esther's husband - to a widow from Belgium. Yochay feels it's too early, although he realizes that sooner or later he must seriously consider getting married again.
When the girls' mother finds out that Yochay may leave the country with her only grandchild, she proposes a match between Shira and the widower. Shira will have to choose between her heart's wish and her family duty.
*I HATE bad seats and I HATE waiting for people who Tell Me they are coming yet don't show up, it's just plain rude. Therefore, anyone who signs up "yes" doesn't change their RSVP and still doesn't show up is asked NEVER to sign up for any of my future events.
I will buy my ticket and go inside as soon as allowed. I will be in the ticket-holders area or line right up until they let us in to get seats. I will then go inside the theater and get the best seat I can. I will not hold seats for others but I will stand up as long as is feasible and I will have some kind of meetup identification so you can find me. I look like my picture.
