HOPEducation screening of  "Rock in the Red Zone"
Monday, January 8, 2018
6:30-9:00 p.m.
Glenview Community Church - Mayflower Room
1000 Elm St, Glenview, IL 60025

This film by Laura Bialis gives us insight into the unique spirit and challenges of Sderot. Situated on the Gaza border and populated by African Jewish immigrants, Sderot is known for its resilience and cutting edge music scene. Part documentary, part love story, "Rock in the Red Zone" will help us to better understand the narratives that have helped shape the Hands of Peace participants who come from this area of Israel.

As always refreshments will be served and a staff-facilitated discussion will follow. Come a few minutes early to mingle. Film will start promptly at 6:30 p.m.

For more information, contact Rhonda McCarty.
