Join ChaiVillageLA, Temple Isaiah, and Temple Emanuel in a special showing of the film, “Disturbing the Peace,” which tells the story of Israeli and Palestinian soldiers who joined together to become nonviolent peace activists through their organization, Combatants for Peace.

In 2006, Israeli and Palestinian former combatants, people who had taken an active role in the conflict, laid down their weapons and established Combatants for Peace. The egalitarian, bi-national, grassroots movement was founded on the belief that the cycle of violence can only be broken when Israelis and Palestinians join forces. Together they work to bring peace, justice, and equality to both peoples. Combatants for Peace is the only organization, worldwide, in which former fighters on both sides of an active conflict have laid down their weapons, choosing to work together in pursuit of a better future. They have been twice nominated for the Nobel Peace Prize, 2017 & 2018.

The screening will be held on Sunday, January 12, 2020 at 3:00 pm in the Belle Chapel, 300 N Clark Drive.
