This is a great story, that of Ireland's Jewry, and Val's work brings it fully to life. She can update us on the community's history, as well, as the documentary leaves off in 2003 or thereabouts. I urge everyone within, mmm, earshot to join us!

Please note: Val has kindly offered to provide us three copies of the special 10th anniversary edition of "Shalom Ireland,' which we will raffle off to three participants in today's community-wide chat with Valerie.

From the film's website, at

"Shalom Ireland is a documentary about Ireland's remarkable, yet little known Jewish community. The one hour film chronicles the history of Irish Jewry while celebrating the unique culture created by blending Irish and Jewish traditions. From gun running for the Irish Republican Army during Ireland's War of Independence to smuggling fellow Jews escaping from the Holocaust into Palestine, Shalom Ireland tells the untold story of how Irish Jews participated in the creation and development of both Ireland and Israel.

The film aired on RTÉ, Ireland's national public broadcaster, and has screened at more than a hundred film festivals, community centers, universities and synagogues around the world."

You can purchase the DVD at in either NTSC or PAL format for $29.00.
