‘Shalom Ireland’ Screening
October 11, 2015 @ 7:00 pm
A documentary film about Ireland’s remarkable, yet little known Jewish community
Shalom Ireland chronicles the history of Irish Jewry while celebrating the unique culture created by blending Irish and Jewish traditions. From gun running for the Irish Republican Army during Ireland’s War of Independence to smuggling fellow Jews escaping from the Holocaust into Palestine, Shalom Ireland tells the untold story of how Irish Jews participated in the creation of both Ireland and Israel.
Robert Briscoe, the first Jewish Lord Mayor of Dublin.
