, join us for an exclusive and thought-provoking session that invites you to explore the intricate and nuanced relationship between American Jews and the enduring concept of Israel, vividly portrayed in four cinematic masterpieces. From ""The Juggler,"" a poignant examination of the profound impact of the Shoah on Israel's inception, to ""Exodus,"" where Paul Newman embodies a charismatic Jewish hero in the founding of the Israeli state, this program offers unique insights into the evolving narrative of Jewish identity. We also venture into ""Cast a Giant Shadow,"" exploring the American Jew's role as an Israeli soldier and the intricate dance of dual identity. Lastly, ""Sword of Gideon"" and ""Munich"" provide compellingly contrasting perspectives on Jewish power and the moral dilemmas it entails.

Your invaluable support for our CSP mission makes this extraordinary experience possible, and we can't wait to share this special program with you.
