  • Wrestling Jerusalem Performance and Peace Cafe

    17 February 2014

    Please join NIF for a series of special matinee performances of Wrestling Jerusalem.


    Wrestling Jerusalem follows one man’s journey to understand the Israeli–Palestinian conflict.

    Following each Sunday performance, the New Israel Fund and Intersection for the Arts will offer the Peace Cafe, an opportunity to break bread and engage in vibrant, open, thoughtful community conversation facilitated by Rachel Eryn Kalish, founding facilitator of the Year of Civil Discourse.

    We encourage you to bring someone with whom you do not agree on the Middle East conflict. All are welcome to share their feelings in this space created for civil dialogue.

    Sunday, March 16 - 2:00 PM
    Sunday, March 23 - 2:00 PM
    Sunday, March 30 – 2:00 PM
    Sunday, April 6 - 2:00 PM

    Intersection for the Arts – 925 Mission Street in San Francisco.

    Aaron Davidman’s solo performance is a personal story that grapples with the complexities of identity, history and social justice. Giving voice to a dozen different characters, the play sheds light on one of the most entrenched conflicts of our time.
