Ameer Abu Ria is about to enlist in the IDF. Ameer is exempt from military service because his enlistment may ‘endanger Israel’s security’. That is because Ameer, an Israeli citizen, is a Muslim Arab. And yet, Ameer has decided to volunteer. An eternal optimist, he wishes to be both a proud Arab and an enthusiastic Israeli, while his only enemy is reality. Join us for the Toronto premiere of this insightful documentary.

Join NIFC and feminist pioneer Hannah Kehat, founder of Israel’s first Orthodox feminist organization, Kolech (‘her voice’). Kehat is a dynamic leader of the discourse in Israel around feminism and religious pressure on women.
