Crossing the Line: The Intifada Comes to Campus, produced by acclaimed filmmaker Raphael Shore and directed by Wayne Kopping, explores the proliferation of anti-Israel and anti-Semitic incidents on North American college campuses. In particular, the film explores the rapid growth of such incidents following the launch of Operation Cast Lead by Israel’s military into Gaza in late December 2008 and January 2009. The documentary demonstrates the blurring of anti-Israel and anti-Semitic lines, showing how the War evoked deep anti-Jewish sentiments amongst college students and professors.
The film explores the context of these hostilities, by demonstrating the financial ties between Middle Eastern Studies departments and Arab states; the often biased and Pro-Palestinian education received by students in college classes; and the historical connection between the Muslim Student Association and the Muslim Brotherhood.
Interspersed with accounts from Jewish Students and campus professionals, the film offers a glimpse into the experiences of Jewish college students who are actively involved in the daily struggle of supporting the State of Israel and fighting against biased misinformation both in and out of the classroom.
We at The Jerusalem Connection understand that this generation of emerging leaders and thinkers are living in a time where even Israel’s right to exist is put into question. In the quad and in the classroom, impressionable young men and women are forming their opinions and values that will last their lifetime. For this reason, Israel cannot afford to lose on the campus battlefield.
The Jerusalem Connection’s mission is to inform, educate, and activate support for Israel and the Jewish people. As such, we invite you to join with us as a cadre of donors who recognize the importance of inspiring and connecting the next generation of Zionists. Please join us in sponsoring one Israel Campus Fellow.
