American Creed film screening and community discussion

January 14 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm

Join the JCCNS for a virtual screening of the PBS documentary “American Creed” in which former US Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice and Pulitzer Prize winning historian David M. Kennedy come together from remarkably different backgrounds, life experiences, and points of view to explore the idea of a unifying American creed.

On Thursday, January 14 at 7:00PM the JCCNS will host a panel discussion with Marty Schneer, Executive Director of the JCCNS, Jeremy Burton, Executive Director of the Jewish Community Relations Council, and Karen Bar-Or, National Activism Director at the Israeli American Council, moderated by Staci Rosenthal from Facing History and Ourselves. The panel will address themes from the film designed to engage the community in thoughtful and respectful dialogue of Jewish and American ideals across all types of deepening divides. The audience will also have the opportunity to hear from the film writer and director Sam Ball about the making of the film and participate in a Q&A.

Link to view film will be provided one week prior to panel discussion.

FREE, but you must register to receive the film link and zoom panel link by e-mailing Sara Ewing at sewing@jccns.com.

Co-sponsored by Citizen Film, the Israeli American Council, Facing History and Ourselves, the Jewish Community Relations Council, and the National Endowment for the Humanities.
