Music in the Key of Peace

An Inspiring Story in Film Filled With Music and Promise

In January and February of 2010, Amitai Gross, son of Rabbis Nadya and Victor Gross of Boulder’s Pardes Levavot, traveled to Israel with a camera and a few leads, searching for groups and individuals committed to building peaceful dialogue between Jews and Arabs using the greatest tool for peaceful communication ever invented: music.

Now, one year later, the resulting documentary, entitled Music in the Key of Peace, is ready to be shared with activist and skeptic alike. Dancing between insightful interviews, inspiring performances, and shared desires for a peaceful future, this film teaches the most important lesson anyone committed to bringing peace to the region could learn: It is possible. And very achievable.

Showings this winter will include the movie itself as well as a discussion with the filmmaker. Please join us for this special, community-wide event, on Sunday, December 19th at 7 pm, at Congregation Har HaShem, 3950 Baseline Road, Boulder. Suggested Donation of $18.
