As part of a two-month celebration of the founding of Israel, the Davis Interfaith Coalition For Peace and Justice in the Middle East will host a showing of part one of the classic and epic movie, “Exodus.”
The movie will be screened at 7 p.m. Tuesday in the Blanchard Room of the Stephens Branch Library, 315 E. 14th St. The second part will be shown at the same location on Tuesday, April 24, at the same time. These screenings are free and open to the public.
This powerful historical drama, based on Leon Uris’ acclaimed novel, chronicles the struggle of Holocaust survivors to reach the Holy Land to join their fellow Jews, who had never left Israel in 3,300 years.
“The subsequent re-establishment of the modern state of Israel is one of the remarkable stories of the 20th century,” a news release said. “The movie’s description of the interplay between Arabs and Jews continues to speak to us today as Israel seeks peace with the Palestinians.”
