Israeli Movie Night

Saturday evenings:  1/20, 3/10, 5/19

A three-part exploration of Israeli cinema and culture led by Israeli congregant Orly Dotan. Films and film clips will be watched as catalysts to conversations about elements of contemporary Israeli society. 


Our first Israeli movie night was a success! We are thrilled to host the second movie screening/lecture in this 3-part series. 
​March 10 at 8:00 p.m.  Zero Motivation is an award-winning, critically-acclaimed Israeli comedy. This movie tells the story of several Israeli female soldiers who are serving together in a military base in the south, their aspirations, desperation, and optimism.
Service in the IDF (Tzahal) is often said to be the most defining Israeli life experience. Women have served in the IDF since its inception. While the roles women have held have changed over the years, reflecting overall changes in societal gender roles, and while many women have wonderful roles, the IDF is far from being an equal opportunity employer.
Come hear about the IDF, women's roles within the IDF, as well as challenges women face when they are serving their country.
A short lecture will precede the screening. We will have a brief discussion afterwards.
The movie is in Hebrew with English subtitles.
This programming is geared for adults (college age teens also welcome).

This series is sponsored by our Israel Engagement Committee.
