To God's Ears: A Documentary
The history of conflict between Catholics and Jews over thousands of years has eased in present times.
A concert of twenty Jewish Cantors singing in a Roman Basilica celebrates the progress in inter-faith
relationships and the importance of understanding and tolerance. To God's Ears is a 42 minute documentary presenting a beautiful combination of music, performance, story and history. The film examines Catholic-Jewish dialogue, telling a story of how far we have come. Cantor Kerith Spencer-Shapiro,
of Temple Sholom in Broomall was a participant in the concert.
The film will be followed by a Q & A session at 4 PM with the film's director, Jeffrey Schneider, who will
join us by Skype from California and Kerith Spencer-Shapiro, Cantor of Temple Sholom in Broomall,
and a participant in the concert.
