“In [Reboot’s] latest blog post, filmmaker Sandi DuBowski shares his experience filming Rabbi Amichai Lau-Lavie over 21 years for his new feature documentary, Sabbath Queen, executive produced by Adrian Salpeter (all Reboot Network members). Supported with funding from Reboot and premiering this month in the 2024 Tribeca Film Festival, the cinematic quest captures Amichai’s efforts to creatively and radically reinvent religion, ritual, and love for a challenging, rapidly changing 21st century. Amichai, the dynastic heir of 38 generations of Orthodox rabbis, rejected his traditional destiny and became a drag-queen rebel, a queer father, and the founder of Lab/Shul – an everybody-friendly, God-optional, artist-driven, pop-up experimental congregation in New York. He is also Sandi’s dear friend – and rabbi.”
