    When the women’s balcony collapses in an orthodox synagogue in Jerusalem, many issues arise. How, Who, When will the congregation rebuild the synagogue? With the beloved rabbi injured in the accident, who will lead the congregation? At the Bar Mitzvah celebration of a loved family in the congregation the women’s balcony collapses in a tragic accident, injuring the rabbi and his wife. How to rebuild, and who to lead the congregation is the next dilemma. The congregation brings a new young rabbi in to assist them, and finds that the assistance is not all that they hoped for. Many controversies and issues ensue. Join us for this fascinating conversation looking into the lives of this congregation and all the ins and outs when they look to their repair of the balcony and the restoration of the community.
