mAAc Meets: Movie Discussion – Lemon Tree
Mon, Oct 26 @ 7:00 pm
Members of our Mature Active Adult Community (mAAc) are invited to join Rabbi Neil Sandler for a movie discussion on the Israeli film, Lemon Tree. The movie is set in the West Bank where Palestinian widow Salma Zidane tends her lemon grove. However, when the Israeli Defense Minister moves in across the way, his security guards demand that she remove the trees which could shelter terrorists. Refusing to accede to the request, Zidane engages a lawyer to take her case to the Supreme Court. The movie, recipient of several film awards, provides an opportunity for consideration of complex issues related to continuing Israeli responsibility within the West Bank.
mAAc members are asked to watch Lemon Tree prior to our program via an online streaming site.
