Documentary Film: 93 Queen

  • Congregation Etz Ahaim 230 Denison Street Highland Park, NJ, 08904 United States (map)

Presented by the Jewish Forum of Edison/Highland Park

The documentary 93 Queen follows Rachel “Ruchie” Freier, a no-nonsense Hasidic lawyer and mother of six who is determined to to shake up the “boys club” in her Hasidic community by creating Ezras Nashim, the first all-female ambulance corp in New York City.

93 Queens is set in the Hasidic enclave of Borough Park, Brooklyn where EMS corps have long been the province of men. Though the neighborhood is home ot the larget volunteer ambulance corps in the world know as Hatzolah, that orgnaization has steadfastly banned women from its ranks.

Now, Ruchie and an engaging cast of dogged Hasidic women are risking their reputations — and literally, the futures of the children — by taking matters into their own hands to provide dignified emergency medical care to the Hasidic women and girls of Borough Park.

Runs 90 minutes. Free of charge.
