Symposium Tuesday has arrived!

The Columbus Jewish Film Festival is pleased to present a symposium on the imprint of Israel on young Jews this evening, beginning at 8:30 p.m., at the JCC of Greater Columbus, 1125 College Ave., Columbus. The symposium will follow the presentation of the documentary, Between Two Worlds.

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, this first-person documentary begins with a near riot at a Jewish Film Festival in San Francisco, reveals the agonizing battle over divestment from Israel on a university campus, and shows the crackdown on dissent in Israel itself.

Directed by Alan Snitow and Deborah Kaufman, the film was produced in the U.S. in 2011. The 70-minute documentary is in English and is rated PG-13, and will start at 7 p.m.

A kosher Chinese dinner will be served to those with previous reservations prior to the film.  Film-only tickets are $8 for JCC members, $10 for non-members, and will be sold at the door at 6:45 p.m.

    love having the jff in Columbus but the movie “Between two Worlds” much one-sided opinion.. and the most difficult was
    1. That Israel is always referred as an occupier???
    2. The film has an opinion that “..some Jews are living too much under the cloud of Holocaust” and should get over it…
