Screening of "Israelism" with Q&A

Thursday, June 13, 2024 7 Sivan 5784

7:00 PM - 9:30 PM

Join the LJCC for this next chapter in our on-going conversation about Israel-Palestine. Following the screening, we will have a Q&A with a team member from "Israelism" as well as a community conversation about our responses to and assessment of the film. 

Given the film's focus on the generational divide over Israel, we invite you to attend this screening with parents and/or adult-children as the case may be. Teens are also welcome to attend although small children should remain at home. 

The LJCC does not endorse the views expressed in the film, but rather offers this screening as a way to foster thoughtful discussion of a difficult but important topic. We hope that all will attend in that spirit.

Synposis of film

When two young American Jews raised to unconditionally love Israel witness the brutal way Israel treats Palestinians, their lives take sharp left turns. They join a movement of young American Jews battling the old guard to redefine Judaism’s relationship with Israel, revealing a deepening generational divide over modern Jewish identity.

Directed by two first-time Jewish filmmakers who share a similar story to the film’s protagonists, ISRAELISM is produced by Peabody-winner & 6-time Emmy-nominee Daniel J. Chalfen (Loudmouth, Boycott) along with activist and filmmaker Nadia Saah (Mo, Omar, 5 Broken Cameras), executive produced by two-time Emmy-winner Brian A. Kates (Marvelous Ms. Maisel, Succession, The Plot Against America) and edited by Emmy-winner Tony Hale (The Story of Plastic).

ISRAELISM uniquely explores how Jewish attitudes towards Israel are changing dramatically, with massive consequences for the region and for Judaism itself.
