Movie Reviews of “Jerusalem” From Three Faith Perspectives

Until March, the St. Louis Science Center Omnimax Theater has the movie “Jerusalem,” a presentation of National Geographic Entertainment. From the Science Center website:

JERUSALEM takes you on an inspiring and eye-opening tour of one of the world’s oldest and most enigmatic cities. Destroyed and rebuilt countless times over 5000 years, Jerusalem’s enduring appeal remains a mystery. In this new film from National Geographic, discover what made Jerusalem so important to many different cultures, how it became the center of the world for three major religions and why it still matters. In addition to telling the historical tale of this great city, JERUSALEM follows three young Jerusalemites and their families – Jewish, Christian and Muslim. Through their eyes, you will learn what it means to call Jerusalem home and experience celebrations and events that mark the high points of a year in the life of the city. See more here!

We are pleased to offer movie reviews from friends in three different religions: Rabbi Jeffrey Stiffman (Reform Judaism), Dr. Adam Ployd (United Methodist Church) and Dr. Hamid Bashir (Islam). These reviews are intended to help promote discussion and are exclusively the responses of each reviews’ respective owners, not the views of Interfaith Partnership. Check out the reviews here and consider sharing with your dialogue group or friends within your own religion.
