January Movie Night’s a Wrap

Another good turnout for this month’s movie night– great to see everybody! After the documentary, we had a great discussion about Arab and Jewish kids growing up in Israel and some of the constant struggles they have, making sense of the world around them while having limited interactions with kids of different backgrounds.

The Arab Jewish Community Center for Tolerance and Peace

Movie night on Thursday! I recommend Dancing in Jaffa for older kids as well as adults, but with parental guidance since there is some talk about the conflict. Very uplifting, though, and a wonderful message of peace.
