Everest: A Climb for Peace

After two years of talk, we’re finally bringing the film Everest: A Climb for Peace to OWU.

Mark your calendars for January 31st at 7PM (Corns Hall Room 312)

Past Hillel Vice President Sally Elkind-Goldstein brought this film to our attention upon returning from a college leadership convention.  It “chronicles the spectacular journey of 9 ‘peace climbers’ from different faiths and cultures as they climb to the summit of the tallest mountain in the world.”  Since the focus of the film is on a pair of climbers one of whom is Israeli the other Palestinian, we thought it would be an excellent piece to bring to campus.  Sometimes we struggle to talk about the fighting between Israelis and Palestinians.  This film will give us a glimpse of what is possible when people from these groups work together for a common goal.

A discussion of the film will follow.  And, filmmaker Lance Trumbull might even join us via Skype!
