CCJ Merseyside Film Showing, 19 August 2014

On Tuesday 19th August, 7.30pm at Liverpool Reform Synagogue Church Road, L15 6TF, Merseyside CCJ is showing the acclaimed documentary film,"It is No Dream: The Life of Theodor Herzl".

All are welcome. Donations of £2 from members and £3 from non-members would be appreciated.

"It Is No Dream: The Life of Theodor Herzl" explores the life and times of Theodor Herzl, father of the modern State of Israel. Narrated by Academy Award®-winner, Sir Ben Kingsley and starring Academy Award®-winner Christoph Waltz as the voice of Theodor Herzl. The film examines how Herzl, a well-known journalist and playwright, an assimilated, Budapest-born Jew, horrified by the Dreyfus trial in Paris and the anti-Semitism he saw spreading across Europe, took upon himself the task of attempting to create a Jewish homeland in Palestine against all odds. Over the span of eight years, Herzl organized and led a worldwide political movement that within fifty years led to the establishment of the State of Israel. The film follows Herzl as he meets with Kings, Prime Ministers, Ambassadors, a Sultan, a Pope and government ministers from Constantinople to St. Petersburg, from Paris to Berlin, from Vienna to Vilna in his quest to build a Jewish nation.
