Frequently asked Questions

Can I show the film multiple times to multiple classes?

Yes. The more the better!

Can I buy more than one film?

Absolutely.

How do I participate in the social media campaign?

Open the screening kit and print the customizable signs BEFORE THE DAY OF THE PROGRAM. Once you’ve shown the film and had the discussion, students fill in the signs with the appropriate school name and location and take pictures of themselves holding the signs. Students should then take pictures holding the signs and then direct-message those pictures to @jerusalem_u on Instagram.  If you don’t want your students to use Instagram or allow them to have phones in school, you could take photos and add them to your school’s Facebook page.

Do I have to show the films on Yom Ha’atzmaut?

No, but we strongly recommend it. An integral part of this program is participating in a worldwide, unified celebration of Israel.

You can also show the films in the week before May 9 (Yom Ha’atzmaut) and during the week after.

Who can I contact for more information?

For any other questions, contact: programming@jerusalemu.org.
