"They Were Promised the Sea" film screening with local artist and filmmaker, Feb. 2015
The Education committee organizes opportunities to increase chapter visibility including speaker events, film showings, Jewish ritual events, tabling at festivals and conferences and more. This group also helps develop materials and chapter resources. They are comprised of educators and others passionate about raising public awareness through getting JVP's perspective known in the community.
The first education event will be geared towards education the Jewish community about the Nakba, "catastrophe," the expulsion of 750,000 Palestinians and destruction of over 500 villages in 1948 during the founding of the state of Israel.
SAVE THE DATE: June 11th Nakba Educational Event
This will be an interactive event that will combine film, presentations from Palestinians in our community and small group discussion.
