“Merage JCC screening of movie The Prime Ministers 2: Soldiers and Peacemakers” Followed by Q&A with Academy Award winning Director Richard Trank



From Moriah Films, this documentary follows the experiences of the late Ambassador Yehuda Avner during the years he served as a diplomat, aide and speechwriter for Prime Ministers Yitzhak Rabin and Menachem Begin. The documentary is the second in a series of two films based on Ambassador Avner’s 2010 best-selling book, The Prime Ministers . The film opens with Rabin’s election in 1974 as the country’s first native born Israeli leader and focuses on the premierships of the Labor Party’s Rabin and Likud’s leader Begin, two men who went from the opposite ends of the political spectrum to eventually share common goals and perspectives regarding Israel’s future. Utilizing never before seen film footage and photographs The Prime Ministers: Soldiers and Peacemakers offers an inside look into major historical events and the leaders of the State of Israel.
