Life in the Gaza Crease as a Lens to Israel

10:15AM - 11:30AM  

Sinai Temple 3104 W. Windsor Rd
Champaign, IL

Join us at Sinai Temple for a screening of the short film The Boy, followed by a panel discussion with Rabbi Alan Cook, Carmel Elazar, Avior Elmualem, Yael Gertner, and Arielle Weinstein. 


Film Synopsis: Avinoam and Barak, father and son from a Kibbutz bordering the Gaza strip, are forced to deal with another round of rockets and combat, each in their own way. One night, Barak reaches a boiling point and Avinoam is forced to absorb the heat.


The filmmaker, Yahav Winner, was murdered by Hamas terrorists on the October 7th massacre after attempting to stall them in order to allow Shaylee Atary, his wife, to escape with their newly born daughter Shaya.
