Join the Great Miami Jewish Federation for a special presentation of MJFF18 Audience Award winning film Above and Beyond at Miami Beach JCC. Attending the screening will be Major Gideon Rimon Lichtman, one of Israel’s first national heroes, who will also be present at a dessert reception hosted in his honor. Seats are limited and will be available on a first come, first served basis. In 1948, a group of WWII pilots volunteered to fight for Israel in the War of Independence. As members of ‘Machal’ -volunteers from abroad -this ragtag band of brothers not only turned the tide of the war, preventing the possible annihilation of Israel at the very moment of its birth;they also laid the groundwork for the Israeli Air Force. ‘Above and Beyond’ is their story. Stay after the film for a reception and special program honoring one of Israel’s first national heroes, Major Gideon Rimon Lichtman. Please be aware that for security reasons all guests will be asked to show proper photo ID. JCC Members should bring their MBJCC Keyfob. RSVP recommended.
