Waiting for Armageddon Playing this Week!
Waiting for Armageddon, a film supported by the Foundation’s Lynn and Jules Kroll Fund for Jewish Documentary Film, will be playing at Cinema Village in New York City from Friday, January 8th through Thursday January 14th. Directed by Kate Davis, David Heilbroner, and Franco Sacchi, Waiting for Armageddon exposes viewers to the culture of American Evangelicals who believe Bible prophecy determines the future of mankind and that Israel and the Jewish people play crucial roles to ensure Christ’s return. The film explores how this belief effects U.S.-Middle East relations and how evangelical Zionism could be used as a pretext for an international holy war. Waiting for Armageddon is sure to be an eye opening experience, don’t miss it.
Do you agree? Disagree? Well here’s your chance to get in on the discussion. Not only is the film playing in New York City this week, but there will be a discussion exploring the relationship between US Evangelical and Jewish communities featuring clips from Waiting for Armageddon on Thursday January 7th at the Puck Building, Rudin Auditorium in New York City located at 295 Lafayette St. The discussion panel will be moderated by Michelle Goldberg, journalist and author of Kingdom Coming: The Rise of Christian Nationalism and will include the directors of the film, David M. Elcott (Professor at Wagner Graduate School of Public Service, NYU), Rabbi Justus Baird (Director of the Center for Multi-Faith Education at the Auburn Theological Seminary), and Richard Cizik (past President of the National Association of Evangelicals). After the discussion there will be a reception with the film’s directors. Contact firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
