Special Screening: When the Smoke Clears

Saturday, November 10, 6:30PM

 

Join us the night before Veterans Day to see this compelling and relevant documentary from Jerusalem U, When the Smoke Clears: A Story of Brotherhood, Resilience, and Hope.

It tells the true stories of young Israeli soldiers, Gil, Ofer, and Elad, whose injuries leave them fighting for the strength to live. Making breakthroughs and finding meaning by reaching out to those in need, they discover that what didn’t kill them really did make them stronger.
