Join the Vassar Jewish Union and Student/Labor Dialogue in a screening of the documentary Care. The documentary explores domestic care work, and the challenges faced by both those receiving care and giving it. Dubbed by Fonhouse “passionate, intimate, uplifting and yet at the same time heart-breaking and profoundly chilling”, Care explores the growing movement calling for changes in the care industry and rights for domestic workers. The documentary is 30 minutes and will be followed by a discussion. The Vassar Jewish Union will also be hosting a shabbat service on Friday, December 1st around the topic of care and the National Domestic Workers’ Movement.
