WHAT IS IT ABOUT?

Museum of Jewish Heritage-A Living Memorial to the Holocaust presents The Journey to Golda's Balcony, written, produced and directed by Yves Gerard Issembert. The film is followed by a discussion with actress Tovah Feldshuh. On Yom Kippur 1973, Egypt and Syria launched a surprise attack against Israel. After three days of intense combat, an unprepared Israel was fighting for its life. Join us for an exclusive screening of the documentary, narrated by Alec Baldwin, starring Broadway luminary Tovah Feldshuh. This film is a rare behind-the-scenes look at the preparation of an actor taking on the role of a lifetime and a Prime Minister taking on the crisis of her life. It has never-before-seen interviews with former heads of state, commanders in the field, and the last interview with Ambassador Simcha Dinitz before he died. It also contains the only available footage from the Broadway play Golda's Balcony. Tovah Feldshuh is a four-time Tony nominee and winner of the Drama Desk and Lucille Lortel for Best Actress for her work in Golda's Balcony.
