Streicker Center: The Beauty Queen of Jerusalem

An imperious matriarch; a daughter who scorns her as a painted charm; a maid, a healer, a rebellious teen. All trapped by a single secret.

At first blush, this could almost be a multigenerational Jane Austen tale … except that the setting is Jerusalem, the beauties are Sephardic, curses fly in Ladino – and the backstory spans Ottoman Palestine through the British Mandate to Israel’s War of Independence.

Based on the international #1 bestselling novel by Sarit Yishai-Levi, the latest entry into the Netflix-sphere is so lush with eccentrics, mysterious powers, forbidden loves and Israeli history that it is poised to become the latest streaming sensation.

The Temple Emanu-El Streicker Center proudly offers the international English-language premiere screening of the first two episodes of The Beauty Queen of Jerusalem, the most lavish-ever Israeli TV epic, with the Ermoza family on hand to discuss beauty, history and the ties that bind.

With:
Hila Saada as Roza Ermoza
Michael Aloni as Gabriel Ermoza 
Swell Ariel Or as Luna Ermoza
