Drummer/ecologist Lisa Schonberg and musician/Torah teacher Alicia Jo Rabins are featured in “Chavruta: Drummer’s Bat Mitzvah,” a 15-minute documentary short by filmmaker Jodi Darby who follows Lisa and Alicia as they trade drum lessons for Torah lessons in a project that combines ritual, study and art. It’s all to prepare for Lisa’s adult bat mitzvah. The two explore Sumerian goddesses, the history of women’s drumming in the ancient Near East, female spiritual leadership, ecology, and how we pass on wisdom from one generation to the next. aliciajo.com/chavruta
