Wednesday, Sept. 30, 7 pm,
Sandler Family Campus

Partnering with the Christian Broadcasting Network, the Community Relations Council of the United Jewish Federation of Tidewater invites the community to a free screening and discussion of The Hope: The Rebirth of Israel, CBN’s newest documentary. Launched in July, the film takes viewers on a journey through the 50 years that preceded the founding of the modern State of Israel.

Combining archival footage with dramatic reenactments, this powerful docudrama offers an inside look at some of the most significant—and unlikely—moments in modern history. Giving people across the globe insight into the struggles and victories of Israel’s founders and visionaries as they worked to reestablish a Jewish homeland after nearly 2,000 years in exile, the film is one hour and 49 minutes long.

Following this premiere screening at the Sandler Family Campus, the documentary’s host and executive producer, Gordon Robertson, along with Erin Zimmerman, the film’s Emmy-nominated writer and director, will offer a behind the scenes look at the making of the film.

To watch the trailer and to RSVP to the community event, visit or email RSVP’s are required and ID’s will be checked at the door.
