Please come (no need to RSVP) this Sunday, December 11 at 10 am to the Pepper Chapel, Congregation Kol Ami is presenting Israeli documentary The Gatekeepers. We will view the film, and a discussion about it will be led by Drora Oren and Matthew Weinstein.
As Israel prepares to mark 50 years since the Six Day War, six former heads of Israel's Shin Bet reflect on the practical and moral dilemmas raised by five decades of occupation. Shin Bet is the security agency responsible for preventing and containing both Palestinian and Jewish political violence. These six men discuss with startling candor the events and controversies of their tenures as well as the larger questions facing Israel. Can Israel ever live side-by-side with a Palestinian state? Is the occupation corrupting Israel? Will there be more religiously-motivated assassinations like Yitzhak Rabin's? Come learn what the individuals who have spent their lives on the front lines of fighting for Israel's security have to say about these questions.
