About the Film

Since its founding in 2008, J Street has attracted many supporters within the American Jewish community and on college campuses. The documentary film “The J Street Challenge” explores the phenomenon of J Street, examining and debating J Street’s message and its leaders.

The film presents J Street’s mission and related actions through speeches by J Street leaders and supporters.
