The 2013 Jewish Film Festival of Dallas will present God's Neighbors (Ha’Mashgichim), which follows Avi, who belongs to a small band of self-appointed vigilantes patrolling the streets of coastal Bat Yam. Together, they terrorize the neighborhood, unreasonably enforcing strict codes of religious observance. Their frighteningly violent behavior is in stark contrast to the teachings of their gentle, charismatic rabbi. Enter pretty, independent-minded Miri, to whom Avi becomes powerfully attracted. When his gang targets Miri’s “immodest” behavior, Avi seriously starts to question the path to faith that he has chosen.

A Q & A will follow the screening with Lt. Col. (res.) Gil Elan, CEO of the Southwest Jewish Congress.
