Two Israeli women, one secular and one Ultra-Orthodox use filmmaking to build trust and open dialogue between members of communities that rarely interact and frequently clash. Their stories revolve around the small town of Beit Shemesh, often the backdrop for current events focused on intolerance and religious radicalism.
This film program was made with the support of The Jewish Federation of Greater Washington’s Partnership 2Gether program.
