LAS VEGAS JEWISH FILM FESTIVAL
Today AEC Middle School and High School students enjoyed a special screening of the film ON THE MAP. This amazing documentary is the true story of the 1977 Maccabi Tel-Aviv Basketball team that made history by beating the Soviet Red Army team and winning their first European title. The "miracle on hardwood" put the State of Israel on the map in international sports and elevated Jewish pride around the world. Filmmaker Dani Menkin spoke to students and answered questions about the process behind making this passion project documentary.
