Join Central for a conversation between Rabbi Nicole Auerbach, and Joseph Dorman and Oren Rudavsky, Colliding Dreams film directors.
The film recounts the dramatic history of one of the most controversial, and urgently relevant political ideologies of the modern era. The century-old conflict in the Middle East continues to play a central role in world politics. And yet, amidst this fierce, often-lethal controversy, the Zionist idea of a homeland for Jews in the land of ancient Israel remains little understood and its meanings often distorted. COLLIDING DREAMS addresses that void with a gripping exploration of Zionism’s meaning, history, and future.
The program is designed for anyone who is interested in diving deeper into the complex, beautiful and painful history of the State of Israel. For parents or educators, please feel free to click here for a study guide that can help you frame the content of the film.
