A Father's Kaddish Film and Discussion (virtual)

Please register here


A Father’s Kaddish tells the story of how Steven Branfman used the art of pottery to help him work through his grief after the death of his 23-year-old son. The film is a potent and moving journey through the universal experience of loss, mourning and rebuilding a life. Join us for a live Q & A with film director, Jen Kaplan, film subject, Steven Branfman and a clinical social worker from Good Shepherd Community Care, the program cosponsor. This program is supported by a grant from the Newton Cultural Council. The Potter's Shop and School is an additional supporter.


In preparation for this event we will release a one-time use link to watch the film, A Father's Kaddish, in advance of this session. The link will be emailed to all registrants on Tuesday, April 13 after 4pm. You do not have to attend the discussion in order to watch the film. However, you must register for the program (which will be held on Zoom) in order to receive the link to watch the film. All those planning to attend the discussion are encouraged to watch the film in order to be able to fully participate. The link will expire at 6:30pm on Thursday, April 15.


View the online exhibit of Steve's pottery that inspired Jen Kaplan to make the film, A Father's Kaddish.
