SCREENING: "Between Two Worlds" a film produced by Deborah Kaufman and Alan Snitow
Presented by The Graduate School of Journalism, The Magnes Collection of Jewish Art and Life, the Joint Degree Program in Jewish Studies at GTU and UC Berkeley, the Jewish Studies Program at GTU, J Street U and Berkeley Hillel
BETWEEN TWO WORLDS is a groundbreaking personal exploration of the community and family divisions that are redefining American Jewish identity and politics. The filmmakers' own families are battlegrounds over loyalty to Israel, interpretations of the Holocaust, intermarriage, and a secret communist past. Filmed in the United States and Israel, it explores the vital question: Who speaks for a divided community at the crossroads?
Q&A with the producers to follow the screening.
