This sensitive film explores the evolving relationship of a group of Jewish Americans to the state of Israel during a 12-day visit to the Occupied Palestinian Territories. The 2016 delegation was led by Rabbi Dov Taylor whose purpose was to afford this small group of American Jews “the opportunity to meet and get to know some Palestinians as human beings, just like themselves, with the same hopes and fears and dreams.” The “wall” in the film’s title refers to the separation barrier constructed by Israel throughout the West Bank, which in many instances has resulted in the loss of Palestinian land, the separation of farmers from their fields, and which greatly restricts the free movement of Palestinians.
Seeing Through the Wall is an appropriate metaphor for the personal stories told by ordinary people daring to have their assumptions and identities challenged and redefined. Program Details & Registration
