Created by renowned Israeli-Arab journalist Sayed Kashua, Arab Labor is a comedy series chronicling the life of Amjad, an Arab-Israeli journalist, trying to navigate Israel's Arab society. Addressing the cultural divide, Kashua and his characters play on religious identity and political differences that make up the mixed society that is Israel.
As part of their congregational shlicha program, B'nai Israel is hosting a screening of two episodes of Arab Labor (Kindergarten and Kidnapped) and a follow-up discussion with PhD candidate, Thair Abu Rass, on the significance of the series for Arab citizens, its impact on Jewish-Arab relations, and discourse in Arab society.
