The San Diego State University Jewish Studies Department in partnership with the Murray Galinson San Diego-Israel Initiative will host a panel of award-winning Israeli actors, directors and writers who will examine modern Israeli society through film by drawing on their own works and experiences.

The symposium will be held at 7 p.m. on Tuesday, April 18, in the Conrad Prebys Aztec Student Union Theater on the second floor. The event is free and open to the public. Reservations are suggested by calling 619-594-5185.

Panelists include Dana Ivgy, a three-time recipient of the Israel Film Academy's Best Actress Award and current visiting lecturer at SDSU where she teaches classes in both Theatre, Television and Film and Jewish Studies.
