MAY 5, 7pm @ the JCC 


Iran, as the leading state sponsor of international terrorism, poses an unacceptable threat to Israel, the United States, and our allies. Were Iran to obtain its desired nuclear capability, it would pose a very real existential threat to the world. Please join us for a community-wide screening of the recently released film that documents the development of Iran's nuclear program and find out what you can do to address this danger.


The screening and discussion are off the record 
and closed to the press.
