Beit Haam

Beit HaAm Films

The Beit Ha’am Films kit consists of six short Israeli films that were carefully chosen from dozens of prize-winning works. The films present various perspectives on Israeli society, the way of life in Israel, and issues of concern to young Israeli filmmakers. Watching them enables Jews in the Diaspora to become acquainted with and reflect on diverse and relevant themes and connect with their Jewish identity and the State of Israel from a different angle. 

Ben Gurion

A Fascinating documentary: Ben-Gurion Epilogue

An educational screening of the Israeli film: “Ben-Gurion, Epilogue”. Based on never seen before archive material, the film reveals the final years of Israel’s founder, David Ben-Gurion. Excluded from leadership, he allowed himself a hindsight perspective, through introspective soul-searching. His reflections provide a surprising vision for today’s crucial decisions and for the future of Israel.

“I have called Zionism once as an endless ideal, and I truly believe that even after we gain our land, Eretz Yisrael, it will not cease to be an ideal; for Zionism as I see it incorporates not only the aspiration to a plot of a promised land for our miserable people, but also an aspiration for a moral and spiritual wholeness.”

– Theodore Herzl, Bifnei Am VeOlam
