T'ruah is proud to partner with Just Vision in promoting two of their documentary projects about Sheikh Jarrah: My Neighbourhood (see below) and Home Front: Portraits from Sheikh Jarrah, a series of free online documentary shorts. Both are available with supplementary resources from T'ruah.
My Neighbourhood is a Peabody Award winning documentary that chronicles the story of Mohammed El Kurd, a Palestinian teenager forced to share a section of his house with Israeli settlers. Mohammed comes-of-age in the midst of unrelenting tension with his neighbours and unexpected cooperation with Israeli allies in his backyard.
Directed by Julia Bacha and Rebekah Wingert-Jabi
