Film: Dancing in Jaffa

CHL Israel-Palestine Documentary Film Series
Tuesday, January 3 – 7:00-9:30pm
Location: Chochmat HaLev

A world-renown ballroom dancer returns to Jaffa, his childhood hometown, to teach ballroom dancing to mixed groups of Arab and Jewish schoolchildren. Getting boys and girls to dance together, and dealing with their parents, turns out to be at least as challenging. Heart-breaking, heart-warming and adorably hilarious, Dancing in Jaffa hits core tensions between Arabs and Jews, raising hopes, inspiration and plenty of questions.

As with all Chochmat HaLev Israel Palestine documentary films, a heart-centered facilitated discussion will follow. All perspectives and voices are welcome.

Donations suggested and collected at the event.
