Mendele Personal Notices and Announcements

June 23, 2014

To minimize wear and tear on the untershames, three requests:

1. Send time-sensitive notices well in advance.
2. Send material as plain text to victor.bers at yale.edu as plain text
(no HTML, other  coding, or attachments) and write MENDELE PERSONALS
in the subject line.
3. Correspond directly with the person who or organization which has
posted the notice, *not* with your ever-beleaguered untershames.

The critically acclaimed film THE PIN is finally opening in Toronto June
27th at Canada Square,
after a wide US release and a sold out Toronto Premiere at the Toronto
Jewish Film Festival.

As Canada's first ever Yiddish language film, this is a truly unique
opportunity for you to be part of Canadian Jewish history.

*Some Praise for The Pin*

“Touches on delicate notes of make-believe and isolation to create a mood
of unadulterated romance in a story that combines the heartbreak of first
love with a more deeply felt trauma.”
*The New York Times*

“The Holocaust love story is filmed with uncompromising authenticity.”
*The Times of Israel*

"A Hidden Gem"
*NOW Magazine*

"Achingly Lovely"
* The Grid*

“The Pin is touching, harrowing and most definitely worth watching.”
*FMV Magazine*

“Sensual rhythm, punctuated by moments of high tension.”
* Jersey Jewish Standard*
