Community Event: Jewish Film Festival & Dinner
November 5, 2017, 5:00 pm - 9:00 pm
Jewish Film Festival Movie: Ben Gurion: Epilogue
Dinner at the Omega Diner
Meet at the AMC Loews Theater on Route 1 in New Brunswick for the 5:00 pm showing of Ben Gurion: Epilogue. In the depths of an archive in Jerusalem, six hours of interview footage with Israel’s mythic founding father, David Ben-Gurion, were recently discovered and brought to light for the first time in this fascinating documentary. It is 1968 and Ben-Gurion has retired to his kibbutz in the desert. His soul-searching is the focus of this film, and his clear voice provides a surprising vision for Israel’s future.
The film will run for 70 minutes, and there will be a discussion following the film with Nir Kedar, Professor of Law and History, Bar-Ilan University. We should arrive for dinner at the Omega Diner (good for vegetarians and omnivores, 1337 Route 1, North Brunswick) around 7:00.
