Next Shabbat, June 25th, marks the fifth anniversary of the kidnapping of Israeli soldier Gilad Shalit.   To assure that Gilad is not forgotten, the Shalit family allowed unprecedented access to documentarian Tal Goren who has created the powerful film:  “FAMILY IN CAPTIVITY”.

The film is an intimate story that follows the day to day efforts of the Shalit family to cope and bring Gilad home. Through their story, we exit the political realm and see the human angle of an ordeal that is relate-able to everyone, showing how these private and anonymous individuals rise to become national symbols.

On Wednesday, June 29th at 7:30 PM, the Oshman Family JCC  will screen the film in their  Schultz Cultural Arts Hall  in support of Gilad and his family.  Help us keep Gilad in our hearts and in the news!

Co-sponsored by: Israeli Cultural Connection (ICC) at the OFJCC , Jewish National Fund, Kol Emeth Israel Action Committee, Jewish Community Relations Council, Consulate General of Israel to the Pacific Northwest,

Anti-Defamation League
