THE RUINS OF LIFTA

THE RUINS OF LIFTA is the story of an Orthodox Jewish grandfather from Brooklyn seeking to restore the overgrown Muslim cemetery in the ruins of Lifta, a ghostly Arab village near Jerusalem destroyed in 1948. He seeks out and joins with Liftan survivors and their descendants as well as with sympathetic Israelis to ensure that Lifta’s haunting beauty is preserved as a place of memory, reflection, respect and hopefully, reconciliation.
