“Shalom Ireland” Screening at Beth Israel Judea

Sunday, October 11th @ 3:00 pm

ICCC Patrick J. Dowling Library located at the United Irish Cultural Center and Congregation Beth Israel Judea are teaming up to host an exciting cross cultural event: two screenings of “Shalom Ireland.”

The screenings will be followed by a panel discussion with the Director, Valerie Lapin Ganley, and representatives from both the Irish and Jewish communities. “Shalom Ireland” is a documentary film about Ireland’s remarkable, yet little known Jewish community. The film chronicles the history of Irish Jewry while celebrating the unique culture created by blending Irish and Jewish traditions. From gun running for the Irish Republican Army during Ireland’s War of Independence to smuggling fellow Jews escaping from the Holocaust into Palestine, “Shalom Ireland” tells the untold story of how Irish Jews participated in the creation of both Ireland and Israel.

Additional screening at UICC October 20
