JCC Chicago Jewish Film Festival - Shalom Ireland
The little-known history of Irish Jewry begins in the Middle Ages, but the modern Jewish community has its roots in the flight from pogroms in Eastern Europe around the turn of the century. Irish Jews ran guns for the IRA, two generations of Briscoes- featured characters-served as Lord Mayor of Dublin, and the renowned Talmudic scholar Rabbi Isaac Herzog was the first chief rabbi of Ireland, and later became the first chief rabbi of the state of Israel. His son Chaim, born in Ireland, became president of Israel.
