Hi Rivka! We are so glad for this opportunity to talk to you. Many of us have seen you starring as lead actress in A Light for Greytowers and The Heart that Sings. How does it feel to play such an important role in these movies?
To begin with, I really feel it is a privilege to be involved in these projects at all. I honestly didn’t understand how necessary these movies were until I started [...]

Robin Garbose’s inspiring energy filled Stern College’s Koch auditorium last Monday night as the film producer and founder of Kol Neshama summer camp visited the campus for a screening of her award-winning feature film, “The Heart that Sings”. A panel discussion with Stern students Mimi Farb, Tova Miller and Leah Gottfried, who had main roles in the film, followed the show.

One afternoon this past winter, I waited at a café in Boro Park for Yuta Silverman, an ambitious young filmmaker who lives in the neighborhood. Although I had watched four of her films in one week, I didn’t know what to expect.

With a cast dominated by religious women and girls – many of them from the Chabad-Lubavitch run Beth Rivkah High School in Brooklyn, N.Y. – “The Heart That Sings” hit theaters last year after [...]

Orthodox director Robin Garbose is at it again. First she made history four years ago with a red carpet premiere of her movie musical “A Light for Greytowers” in Los Angeles. Modestly clad Orthodox girls and women filled Paramount Studio’s lot at the Sherry Lansing Theater, many attending a movie for the first time.
Last week, during Hanukkah, Garbose again proved that Jewish religious art can prevail with the women-only premiere of her second film, “The Heart that [...]

As an Orthodox woman – hassidic, even – it has been hard for me to watch the news and developments from Israel in recent weeks.
On one hand, Jewish law and traditions of female modesty are very important to me. Although I did not grow up in an observant family, I came to embrace the value of personal modesty as an adult. Especially in Southern California, where the popular culture glamorizes and profits from immodesty, I have found tzniut [...]
