An old proverb says, "An enemy is someone whose story you do not know."
WRESTLING JERUSALEM is a solo performance piece about Israel and Palestine. It's a personal story of wrestling. Of grappling. With identity. With social justice. With ethnic allegiance. With history. With spirituality. Drawn from a 30 year journey, the 90 minute play weaves a tapestry of narratives and gives voice and humanity to a dozen different characters. Set in America, Israel and the Palestine, WRESTLING JERUSALEM reflects on the multi-layered issues that live at the center of a conflict that has lasted generations.
Following each Sunday performance, Intersection for the Arts and New Israel Fund will sponsor the Peace Café, an opportunity to break bread and engage in vibrant, open, thoughtful community conversation facilitated by Rachel Eryn Kalish, founding facilitator of the Year of Civil Discourse.
We encourage you to bring someone with whom you do not agree on the Middle East conflict. All are welcome to share their feelings in this space created for civil dialogue. The New Israel Fund (NIF) is the leading organization advancing democracy and equality for all Israelis. Learn more at www.nif.org.
