AHI presents a new documentary film by award-winning filmmaker Gloria Z. Greenfield

The Alexander Hamilton Institute for the Study of Western Civilization (AHI) is pleased to present the showing of Body and Soul – The State of the Jewish Nation, a new documentary film by award-winning filmmaker Gloria Z. Greenfield, on Tuesday, March 31, at 7:00 p.m. in the Bradford Auditorium of the Kirner-Johnson Building at Hamilton College. The event is free and open to the public. For more details, visit www.theahi.org.

A post-screening discussion with the audience will be lead by director/producer Gloria Z. Greenfield. Body and Soul – The State of the Jewish Nation is her third feature-length documentary film.  She produced The Case for Israel – Democracy’s Outpost, released by Doc Emet Productions in 2008; and produced and directed Unmasked Judeophobia, released by Doc Emet Productions in 2011.

Islamist ideologues understand the power of rewriting history and they have broadened their campaign to dismantle the nation-state of the Jewish people with the erasure of Jewish history and creation of pseudo-history.  Body and Soul – The State of the Jewish Nation presents a comprehensive examination of the broad and deep connections between the Jewish People and the Land of Israel. World-renowned historians, archaeologists, political scientists, religious leaders, and international law and media experts trace the evocative evolution of the relationship between the Jewish People and their homeland that is more than 3,000 years old.

“Jewish identity is born in a journey to the Land of Israel”, declares former Chief Rabbi Lord Jonathan Sacks of the United Kingdom. That journey begins in Antiquity and brings the viewer into modernity, where the development of political Zionism catalyzed the blossoming of a new Jewish spirit. That renewal of Jewish spirit resulted in the rebirth of Jewish sovereignty in the Land of Israel, an event that author, commentator and Harvard University Professor Ruth Wisse cites as “a miracle of truly Biblical proportions.”

This powerful 64-minute documentary not only presents the undeniable historical connection between the Jewish People and the Land of Israel, but also succeeds in debunking the propaganda, myths and misinformation that have become accepted as truth by so many.

Prior to founding Doc Emet Productions, where she serves as President, Gloria Z. Greenfield was a senior executive in the publishing world; senior marketing manager in the high tech industry; strategy manager for the Partnership for Excellence in Jewish Education; director of the Adult Learning Collaborative for Combined Jewish Philanthropies; and executive director of The David Project, where she broadened the organization’s mission to focus on Jewish leadership development and launched groundbreaking Israel advocacy programs for American students in Israel.

In January 1980, Greenfield was featured in Ms. Magazine as a “woman to watch in the ‘80s”.  An alumna of the State University of New York at Oswego, she was honored with their “Distinguished Alumna Award” in October 1983; and in May 2005, the Bureau of Jewish Education of Greater Boston presented Gloria with their Keter Torah Award for her contribution to Jewish education.
