“Israelism” Film Screening

February 11 @ 3:00 pm 6:00 pm EST

In the spirit of cross-cultural learning and understanding, the Albany Chapter of Jewish Voice for Peace alongside our co-sponsors, are excited to host an in person screening of Israelism followed by a community discussion at The Sanctuary for Independent Media. Created by two first-time Jewish filmmakers who followed the experience of two young American Jews, Israelism provides a thought provoking view into the connection between the American Jewish Community and Israel.

Masks required and can be provided. Attendance is limited, pre-registration required!

Sponsored by: Albany Chapter of Jewish Voice for Peace

Sorry, but we have hit our registration limit! Please note: there will be no entrance at door without confirmed registration.

Please join us after the film screening (roughly 1.5 hours long) followed by a discussion, facilitated by representatives of the Jewish, non-Jewish and Palestinian/Arab communities, on your takeaways, related personal experiences and reflections. Even if you have already seen the film, please feel free to join later for the subsequent discussion.

In showing Israelism, Albany JVP, The Sanctuary for Independent Media, along with our co-sponsors Women Against War, Bethlehem Neighbors for Peace, Palestinian Rights Committee Albany, and Saratoga BLM, and PSL hope to further understanding between all members of our community on this difficult and controversial issue and provide a safe space for dialogue.

If you want to understand the wrenching generational rift over Israel among many left-leaning American Jews, the documentary “Israelism,” is a good place to start.
