Fourth Sunday Flicks: A Wing and a Prayer

A Wing and a Prayer, a film by Boaz Dvir, tells the virtually unknown story of Al Schwimmer who led a secret, illegal operation to give the newborn Jewish State a chance to survive. Schwimmer and key members of his team thought they were through figting after WWII ended in 1945. Yet Schwimmer convinced them to put their lives and U.S. citizenships on the line to give the Jewish State a fighting chance in the 1948 Arab-Israel War. Mr. Dvir will be with us to lead a discussion of the film.
