"The Many Faces of Israel"
Should the Bible be taught as part of the educational system?
Should Arab citizens be forced to learn the same curriculum?
Should state-sponsored companies be forced to shut down on Shabbat?
Should the Israeli Chief Rabbinate have a hand in every aspect of daily life and authority to regulate
marriage, food and conversation?
These questions -- derived from "hot" topics surrounding what it means to live in both a Jewish and democratic state -- and the answers to them provide the content of "Faces of Israel," a film written, directed, edited and translated by 26-year-old Amy Beth Oppenheimer.
The 75-minute interactive documentary will be shown on Thursday, November 8 at 7:00 p.m. at Temple Torah of West Boynton Beach, as part of the new joint Adult Education program of the temple and Temple Shaarei Shalom. Oppenheimer will discuss and introduce the film that was completed in 2010 and been presented at synagogues, JCCs, high schoolsl, colleges and summer camps throughout the U.S. as an educational tool to foster dialogue.
The temple is located at the northeast corner of Jog Road and Gateway Boulevard.
Cost is $10 for temple members; $12 for non-members, payable at the door.
