Events | “Between Two Worlds” – Documentary about Jewish community split on Israel

Sunday, October 23, 2011.  7:00pm – 9:00pm

Canadian Friends of Peace Now and Temple Emanu-El-Beth Sholom present
Between Two Worlds: a documentary screening, followed by a panel discussion of young Jews about their relationships with Israel.

Between Two Worlds is a groundbreaking personal exploration of the community and family divisions that are redefining American Jewish identity and politics. The filmmakers’ own families are battlegrounds over loyalty to Israel, interpretations of the Holocaust, intermarriage, and a secret communist past. Filmed in the United States and Israel, this first-person documentary begins with a near riot at a Jewish Film Festival in San Francisco, reveals the agonizing battle over divestment from Israel on a university campus, and shows the crackdown on dissent in Israel itself.

Moderated by Dr. Stephen Scheinberg, Professor Emeritus in History at Concordia University
