Travel To A Place Of Empathy

The 30th edition of the Boston Jewish Film Festival kicked off on Wednesday night and runs through Nov. 19, bringing together dozens of films that reflect varied perspectives on the Jewish experience. It’s a time to celebrate for the festival, which over the years has expanded from two days’ to two weeks’ worth of films, and also now offers programming year-round.

At the same time — and especially in the wake of last month’s mass shooting at the Tree of Life synagogue in Pittsburgh — the festival can serve as a place for community and as an educational tool for the world at large, according to festival artistic director Ariana Cohen-Halberstam.
