Rabbi Lynn Gotlieb on justice and peace and film actor/producer Waleed Zuaiter on the film "Omar"
Co-hosts Zaha Hassan and Ned Rosch interview Rabbi Lynn Gottlieb, long-time activist in support of Palestinian human rights and justice, and discuss the new Palestinian film, “Omar” with Waleed Zuaiter, one of the film’s producers and stars.
As not only one of the first women rabbis, but also one of the first rabbis to take a public stand for justice for Palestinians, Rabbi Gottlieb practices what she preaches - creatively and powerfully. Lynn explores the prophetic tradition in Judaism that requires people to stand for justice and to work for peace.
Waleed Zuaiter, a Palestinian who grew up in the diaspora and worked on this amazing film in Israel and Palestine, addresses the importance of Omar as an influential work of art and as an experience that touched him deeply.
