A Bottle In The Gaza Sea

A Bottle in the
Gaza Sea

Sponsored by: Temple Beth El and Mecklenburg Ministries

Seventeen-year-old Tal, who lives in Jerusalem, writes a letter expressing her refusal to accept that only hatred can reign between Israelis and Palestinians. She slips the letter into a bottle, and has her brother throw it into the sea near Gaza, where he is carrying out his military service. A few weeks later, Tal receives an e-mail response from the mysterious "Gazaman," a young Palestinian named Naim. Thus begins a turbulent but tender long-distance friendship between two young people that are separated by a history they are trying both to understand and change. This thought-provoking and hopeful drama is based on the award-winning novel of the same name.
