The film The J Street Challenge examines the rise of the well-funded activist organization with a powerful marketing effort and a seemingly idealistic message that appeals to many frustrated by the Middle East conflict. The film presents commentary and analyses from a wide political spectrum.
A production of Americans For Peace & Tolerance, this film features Alan Dershowitz and Ruth Wisse, Harvard professors; Rabbi Daniel Gordis of the Shalem College in Jerusalem; Caroline Glick of the Jerusalem Post; and Bret Stephens, Pulitzer Prize-winning columnist for the Wall Street Journal.
The first Woodmere screening of the film is scheduled for Saturday evening, January 10, 8:00 p.m. at Young Israel of Woodmere, 859 Peninsula Boulevard in Woodmere. Free of charge. Discussion to follow the film.
