Event Details

"After Incarceration, There's Life"

Please join the Temple Israel community as we prepare for Passover with a screening of Beyond the Wall. As our Exodus story instructs, liberation is only the first step - the challenge is living with freedom. The U.S. imprisons Americans at globally unprecedented rates; within three years of release approximately two-thirds of the formerly incarcerated, particularly those with substance abuse disorder, are re-arrested and sent back to prison. Beyond the Wall takes a close look at the journey from incarceration to community, from behind the wall to beyond the wall, of several Massachusetts men who are attempting to rebuild their lives on the outside with little support from the system. Louie Diaz, whose dedication to helping these men is central to the film, will be present for a Q&A.
