From Emily Greenspan ’16
J Street U is tingling with excitement to announce its first event of the year, a screening of the award-winning, critically-acclaimed documentary, The Gatekeepers. The film showcases six former heads of the Shin Bet, Israel’s secret service agency, who agree to share their insights and reflect publicly on their actions and decisions. Intimately interviewed, they shed light on the controversy surrounding the Occupation in the aftermath of the Six Day War.
Discussion session to follow screening.
1) You’re interested in discussing/learning about the Israeli-Palestinian conflict.
2) You like the idea of eating free pizza(!!!) watching an excellent film, and discussing the conflict with some of the coolest kids on campus.

Check out this insider coverage of what will surely go down in the history books as Wesleyan’s Rush on Pizza. Today at approximately 4:20 PM, Texts.com (started by the esteemed Peter Frank ’12) distributed 60 pies (30 of which were vegan, vegetarian, or gluten-free). We have video evidence of the stampede that followed.

In Deaf Jam, Aneta Brodski seizes the day. She is a deaf teen
introduced to American Sign Language (ASL) Poetry, who then boldly
enters the spoken word slam scene. In a wondrous twist, Aneta, an
Israeli immigrant living in the Queens section of New York City,
eventually meets Tahani, a hearing Palestinian slam poet. The two
women embark on a collaboration/performance duet – creating a new form
of slam poetry that speaks to both the hearing and the Deaf. Prefrosh and families welcome! Click here for more information about the film and check out the event on Facebook. Sponsored by Sign Language House & SALD
