Announcing the Release of "Faces of Israel", a New and Thought-Provoking Documentary on Religion & State Issues in Modern Day Israel (www.facesthemovie.com)
Faces of Israel is a refreshing 75 minute film that poses a series of thought-provoking questions on hot topics in Israel:
- the meaning of Israel as a Jewish and democratic state
- the current and future role of the Israeli Chief Rabbinate
- the legalization of civil unions and same sex unions in Israel
- the place of Conservative and Reform Judaism in Israel
- and more!
Faces of Israel explores these issues through interviews with Israelis ranging from openly gay secular university students to leaders in the Masorti movement to National Religious immigrants to Orthodox yeshiva students. The film includes exclusive footage with Israel's Ashkenazi Chief Rabbi Yona Metzger.
Faces of Israel can be watched as a 1-hour 15-minute documentary or viewed by themed chapter. Institutional copies of the film include extensive educational materials, including background information, discussion questions by chapter and additional resources. Faces of Israel released to the public just last month in a sold out debut in NYC and is ideal for classroom use in the university setting. The film has been endorsed by a wide spectrum of Jewish leaders including scholars from the RCA, JTS, HUC, JRF, YU, UCSJ, etc. who have called Faces of Israel "powerful... mature... sophisticated... honest" and "a must see".
