Lenten Dinner and Discussion Series: “Voices Across the Divide”, with special guest — filmmaker Dr. Alice Rothchild
Thursday, April 10, 2014
Voices Across the Divide, a new documentary by Alice Rothchild and Sharon Mullally. Dinner and film begin at 6:00 p.m. sharp, with a discussion to follow with the filmmaker, Dr. Alice Rothchild.
The Israeli/Palestinian conflict is one of the most prominent, hot button debates in the U.S. today. Access to information about the conflict is shaped by powerful forces and organizations. We hope Voices Across the Divide will contribute to an open dialogue grounded in mutual respect, understanding, and political activism, that leads to justice for all people in the region. Narrated by Alice Rothchild, an American Jew raised on the tragedies of the Holocaust and the dream of a Jewish homeland in Israel, Voices Across the Divide follows her personal journey as she begins to understand the Palestinian narrative, while exploring the Palestinian experience of loss, occupation, statelessness, and immigration to the U.S.
