"Seeing through the Wall: Meeting Ourselves in Palestine and Israel" is a Documentary by Anne Macksoud, Woodstock, VT
June 2017 marks the 50th anniversary of the 6th Day War and the Israeli occupation of Palestine. For Israelis and for Jews around the world, the 1948 War of Independence was a miracle - and a new beginning for a suffering people. For Palestinians, it became a catastrophe. Both narratives are authentic. “Seeing Through the Wall: Meeting Ourselves in Palestine and Israel,” re-visits these narratives through the eyes of a group of Americans. For twelve days in 2016, the group traveled with Rabbi Dov Taylor for a 12-day tour of Israel and Palestine to listen and learn.
