    An Article of Hope documentary film

    An Article of Hope, an award-winning film about the remarkable true story of Colonel Ilan Ramon, Israel’s first astronaut and the tiny Torah he carried into space, will be shown at the Leventhal-Sidman JCC in Newton (333 Nahanton Street) on Tuesday, May 3 at 7pm.

    The documentary tells the Torah’s journey, from the Bergen-Belsen concentration camp to the day it was celebrated aboard the space shuttle Columbia. It is a unique story that interweaves the heights of scientific achievement, the depths of a nation’s cruelty, the private grief of a boy who came of age during the Holocaust, and the public mourning of many nations in the aftermath of the Columbia shuttle disaster. Combining historical and ethical inquiry, the film reaches across faiths and nationalities to tell a truly human story.

    An Article of Hope, a West Street Productions and Herzog & Company film, is part of the Ryna Greenbaum JCC Center for the Arts. The showing is co-sponsored by the Consulate General of Israel to New England, the Jewish Community Relations Council and the New England Holocaust Memorial. A post-show discussion will take place with Dan Cohen, the film’s director.
