JCC Holds Screening of 'Family in Captivity'

The event will be held June 27


The Jewish Community Center in Woodbridge will hold a screening of Family in Captivity to commemorate the five year anniversary of Gilad Shalit being held in Gaza as a prisoner of Hamas. 

This new documentary provides rare images and interviews with the Shalit family as they fight for the release of their beloved son, brother and grandson – and cope with the ordeal of their anguished separation from him. The film, which was produced in 2011, is in Hebrew with English subtitles and is 59 minutes long. 


"Family in Captivity" is being shown in Jewish communities across North America.  The New Haven premiere will be held on June 27 at 7 p.m. at the Jewish Community Center, 360 Amity Road, Woodbridge.  Tickets are $10/adults, $5/students.  For more information, call Ruth Gross 203-387-2522 x310 or
