JCC Jewish & Israeli Film Fest Closing Film: A Common Goal


Contact Frances Kahan

Join YAD (Young Adult Division) for the closing night of the Mayerson JCC's Jewish & Israeli Film Festival. Other partnership support by Mayerson JCC Young Adults

In 2019 the Israeli National Soccer Team prepares for the Euro 2020 Qualifying Tournament, and for the first time in the club’s history, almost half of the players are Muslim. This dynamic documentary shadows three players featured in the starting lineup – Striker Moanes Dabbur, Captain Bibras Natcho (the first and only Muslim to hold that honor), and Central Midfielder Beram Kayal. The diversity of the players causes controversy, provoked by rabid fans and biased media. With candor, the players share their challenges, tremendous perseverance, and passion for a game that has the potential to bridge cultures. View the trailer here:
