Precious Life Movie and Discussion
More than 150 community members attended a screening of Precious Life at the JCC Greater Washington on February 8th. After the screening, film maker Shlomi Eldar addressed the crowd. The film was nominated for an Oscar in 2011 and tells the story of an Israeli pediatrician and a Palestinian mother on a quest to get treatment for her baby, who suffers from an incurable genetic disease. Each must face their most profound biases as they inch towards a possible friendship in an impossible reality. The film was presented by the Embassy of Israel, Israeli House Washington הבית הישראלי בוושינגטון , Israel Scouts (Tzofim), The Jewish Federation of Greater Washington, and the Israel Action Center at the JCRC.
