Join us for a dynamic discussion based on the new feature film “Upheaval: The Journey of Menachem Begin.”

Imprisoned by the Soviets. Orphaned by the Holocaust. Elected prime minister. Crowned peacemaker by the Nobel Prize Committee. Disgraced by the Lebanon War. Menachem Begin was a pillar of the State of Israel and a tireless fighter for the Jewish people.

Lappin Charitable Foundation.
