Event Description
REGINA

Dir. DianaGroo (63min, Hungary, 2013)
Documentary
Mid-Atlantic Premiere

Regina Jones, played here by Rachel Weisz was the first female Rabbi– a prototypical feminist, who would have never copped to the term.


The daughter of an Orthodox Jewish peddler, Jonas was ordained in Berlin in 1935, but not without a fight. During the rise of the Nazi era, her sermons soothed and encouraged persecuted Jews, but she could not save herself, eventually perishing in Auschwitz in 1944.Director Diana Groo employs a jazzy archival style reminiscent of PéterForgács, and gives voice to Regina’s life.
