A conversation with Ron Leshem, “Valley of Tears” creator

December 7, 2020 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm

Screenwriter and author Rob Leshem is the creator of Valley of Tears, a new HBO Max series shaking Israeli society and now reaching American audiences. Inspired by true events, Valley of Tears is a ten-part miniseries depicting the Yom Kippur War through the eyes of young combatants. It tells four emotional and highly personal stories of individuals swept away from their loved ones by the ravages of war, four parallel plotlines, intertwined together into one climactic battle.

Ron will join us for 90 minutes in a conversation moderated by Minnesota Hillel Israel Fellow Noy Zarchi. There will be time for a Q & A—come prepared to ask Ron questions about his work. This program is brought to you by the Israel Center of Minneapolis Jewish Federation, JCRC, and Minnesota Hillel.
