Eyewitness 1948 Screening
A screening of Eyewitness 1948: The American Contribution to the Founding of the State of Israel at NBN as part of 10 Days of Gratitude.
About this event
Join us for a series of short films about the critical, yet little known role American Jews played in Israel’s founding. Culled from over 150 interviews conducted by Toldot Yisrael, the films document the stories of Americans who volunteered to fight in the War of Independence; smuggled weapons, machine parts, and uniforms overseas; and raised funds to help bring Holocaust refugees to Palestine.
Aryeh Halivni, founder and director of Toldot Yisrael, will introduce the films and share some behind the scenes stories.
