Reel Theology: Dinner and Movie with Rabbi Gaylia R. Rooks

Every 4th Sunday of the month
Pizza and soft drinks at 6:30 pm
Movie starts at 7:00 pm in the Waller Chapel
We will be screening East Jerusalem West Jerusalem, by David Broza, Israeli singer and songwriter. An Israeli folk-rock superstar uses the power of music to alter political and social realities, and unite musical artists on both sides of the Middle East divide, in East Jerusalem West Jerusalem.
Often dubbed an Israeli Bruce Springsteen, singer-songwriter David Broza makes it his mission to promote peace through his soul-stirring vocal and guitar work, and fusion of musical influences. At a time when Israeli-Palestinian tensions seem at a fever pitch, the dogged artist-activist tries to fulfill a longtime dream of connecting adversaries by recording an album in Arab East Jerusalem. Crossing so-called enemy lines, he is joined by Grammy-winning artist-producer Steve Earle. Over just eight days, in a tiny East Jerusalem studio, Israeli and Palestinian music collaborators jam together in harmonious creation. As they share deep conversation and surprising personal truths, the music breaks through the cynicism and fear, and coexistence becomes palpable.
