This workshop really opened my eyes on semitism and the effects that it has on the Jewish community as a whole. I was surprised to see that the filmmakers Alan Snitow and Deborah Kaufman themselves were at the workshop. This film began about the Jewish film festival in California with the controversial screening of the film ” Rachel” and led into the effects of Semitism. The movie also discussed how Jews are expected to mate with fellow Jews to create more Jewish children. The organization “Birthright” was a prime example. Overall the workshop made you think twice about the controversial issues of religion in the world we live in.
