FEATURING: A guest presentation from Dr. Sheryl Nestel of Independent Jewish Voices Canada

Sheryl Nestel has been an activist for justice in Israel/Palestine for over forty years. She is a member of the National Steering Committee of Independent Jewish Voices, a national human rights organization working for peace and justice in Israel/Palestine. Dr. Nestel is a sociologist who taught in the former Department of Sociology and Equity Studies at the Ontario Institute for Studies in Education of the University of Toronto from 2000-2011. Her book "Obstructed Labour: Race and Gender in the Reemergence of Midwifery" won the Canadian Women's Studies Association's outstanding book of the year for 2007. She is currently working on a book about North American Jews and the question of Palestine.


One grandmother, one rabbi, one anarchist and one ex-soldier – four Israelis trying to put an end to the Israeli occupation of the Palestinian Territories. The documentary Israel vs Israel is a film about Jewish peace activists who in both words and actions take a stand again 40 years of occupation and illegal settlements. This is a film about the desperate struggle to somehow change the current situation and improve life for the Palestinians. In return, these activists face scepticism and hatred from fellow Israeli countrymen.

Israel vs Israel reveals both sensitive family discussion as well as secret testimonies from former combat soldiers. These Israelis are often portrayed as naïve, unreliable and dangerous for the Jewish state. They are often ridiculed and demonised for their honest commitment. The fight for peace divides Israel in Terje Carlssons new documentary.
