Join us for the traditional Eichah (Book of lamentations) reading followed by a film screening of a thought provoking, contemporary film.
Filmmaker Adam Hootnick asks whether Israel has launched a war against its own citizens in this film that offers a critical look at the 2005 withdrawal from Gaza. As Israel embarks on its biggest military operation in decades, two soldiers will be sent to evict three Israelis from their homes, and one activist will struggle to steer her country off the warpath. For this generation, the true definition of “home” has yet to be determined. These are the stories of the people on the front lines of a war in which the battleground is a blur, and the fight for peace begins in one’s own backyard.
