Many walls separate Palestinians and Israelis --- walls of concrete, of mistrust, of ignorance, of fear. This film follows a group of Americans led by Rabbi Dov Taylor and Hands of Peace Director of Facilitation and Mejdi Guide, Husam Jubran, on a 2016 trip to explore what life is like in the West Bank and East Jerusalem. Many of those on the trip describe their own reflection and transformation as a result of these intense encounters. SEEING THROUGH THE WALL invites and challenges viewers to question their own preconceptions as well.
