    25th Boston Jewish Film Festival - The Dewey Stone Connection: From Exodus to Independence

    This is the incredible saga of the late Dewey Stone of Brockton, MA, "an unsung hero for Israel." A Zionist philanthropist in the 1940s, Dewey purchased and smuggled arms to the Haganah, outfitted the Exodus, the ship carrying Holocaust survivors to Palestine, and helped to establish the Weizmann Institute of Science.

    Preceded by Ben-Gurion Hosting
