The Syrian Bride -- about the story:
Mona's wedding day is the saddest day of her life. She knows
that once she crosses the border between Israel and Syria to
marry Syrian TV star Tallel, she will never be allowed back to
her beloved family in Majdal Shams, the largest Druze village in
the Golan Heights, occupied by Israel since 1967. The Syrian
Bride is a story about physical, mental and emotional borders
and the will to cross them. A story about a family trying to
cope with its ability to define boundaries and deal with them --
focusing on Mona's sister Amal, a modern woman trapped in a
tradition and culture she wants to break out of. Once you cross
the border there is no way back and at the end of a long day,
the family, the government and military officials and all those
gathered on both sides of the border find themselves facing an
uncertain future, trapped in No-Man's land between Israel and

Combatants for Peace -- January 31 and February 1: Brit Tzedek
v'Shalom is hosting a nationwide tour for an Israeli and a
Palestinian former combatant who are traveling together and
