The Cleveland Israel Arts Connection was joined by Eran Polishuk, CEO and founder of Chapter Two Films, for a virtual program to discuss “Diversity, Equity & Inclusion in Contemporary Israeli Cinema.”

The program was hosted by Susan Wasserman, member, Cleveland Israel Arts Connection Advisory Committee and co-chair, Mandel JCC Cleveland Jewish FilmFest.
