Israeli film night brings out the hope in people
On March 22, the Jewish Federation of Greater Orlando hosted an Israeli Film Night screening, "A Bottle in the Gaza Sea," at the Orlando Science Center. More than 90 locals gathered to watch the film, which is centered around two young adults, Tai and Naim, 17 and 20 respectively. She's Israeli. He's Palestinian. She lives in Jerusalem. He lives in Gaza. They must endure an explosive situation that is not of their choosing at an age where young people are falling in love and taking their place in adult life.
A bottle thrown in the sea and a correspondence by email nurture the slender hope that their relationship might give them the strength to confront this harsh reality and thereby ever so slightly change it.
The Jewish Federation of Greater Orlando thanks Ed and Marian Bromberg who sponsored the event in celebration of Marian's birthday.
