In January the Broad Street United Methodist Church is hosting a series of presentations and films about the history of the Israel Palestine conflict and the work to promote lasting peace in the war-torn region.
On Sunday, January 12 from 12:45 to 2:45 p.m., Emily Schornstein will discuss her recent trip to Palestine and present a short history of the conflict. A question and answer session will follow. For more information, please contact Emily at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Broad Street Methodist will screen the Academy Award nominated documentary The Gatekeepers from 5 to 7 p.m. on Sunday, January 19. Directed by Israeli filmmaker Dror Moreh, the film includes interviews with six former heads of the Shin Bet, Israel's secret service agency. They speak candidly about the controversies surrounding the Occupation in the aftermath of the Six Day War.
The Shin Bet has worked closely with every Israeli prime minister in decisions involving the Palestine Occupied Territories.
Popcorn will be provided, and a discussion will follow the screening. Broad Street United Methodist Church is located at 501 East Broad Street in Columbus.
