PJFF CineMondays 2018 opens with GI JEWS: JEWISH AMERICANS IN WORLD WAR II, a powerful documentary about the extraordinary experiences of these brave Americans.

Nearly 550,000 Jewish American men and women risked their lives to fight against fascism, bigotry, and intolerance during World War II. GI JEWS tells the story of these courageous veterans in their own words. With famous personalities like director Mel Brooks and former Secretary of State Henry Kissinger, director Lisa Ades pulls together a fascinating collection of voices. For American Jews, WWII was about Jewish integration into the American fabric, preserving the democratic ideals they held so dear, and putting an end to the bloodshed of their people.

When the war ended, our nation's Jewish servicemen and women emerged transformed, more powerfully American and deeply connected to their Jewish roots.
