Filmmaker Gloria Greenfield will screen her documentary, Body and Soul: The State of the Jewish Nation, on Tuesday, March 31, at 7 p.m., in the Bradford Auditorium, Kirner-Johnson Building. It is free and open to the public and sponsored by the AHI Undergraduate Fellows.
According to the film’s website, “Body and Soul – The State of the Jewish Nation presents a comprehensive examination of the broad and deep connections between the Jewish People and the Land of Israel. World-renowned historians, archaeologists, political scientists, religious leaders and international law and media experts trace the evocative evolution of the relationship between the Jewish People and their homeland that is over 3,000 years old.”
Greenfield brings over 30 years of strategic planning, marketing and management experience to her current work dedicated to the strengthening of Jewish identity and Jewish nationhood through film. She produced The Case for Israel - Democracy’s Outpost, released by Doc Emet Productions in 2008 and produced and directed Unmasked Judeophobia (2011).
Prior to founding Doc Emet Productions, where she serves as president, Greenfield held managerial positions in publishing and the high tech industry. She was strategy manager for the Partnership for Excellence in Jewish Education; director of the Adult Learning Collaborative for Combined Jewish Philanthropies; and executive director of The David Project, where she broadened the organization’s mission to focus on Jewish leadership development and launched groundbreaking Israel advocacy programs for American students in Israel.
In January 1980, Greenfield was featured in Ms. Magazine as a “woman to watch in the ‘80s”. An alumna of the State University of New York at Oswego, she was honored with its “Distinguished Alumnus Award” in October 1983; and in May 2005, the Bureau of Jewish Education of Greater Boston presented Greenfield with their Keter Torah Award for her contribution to Jewish education.
