Join JCC of the North Shore 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.
Featuring 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.
Link to view film will be provided one week prior to panel discussion.
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.
