Yitzhak Rabin Memorial Day is Monday, October 18. Join our shlicha, Mala Hod, to commemorate the day by watching and discussing the film Incitement.

In September 1993, Israeli Prime Minister Yitzhak Rabin announced the Oslo Accords, which aimed to achieve a lasting peace between Israelis and Palestinians after decades of violence. Yigal Amir (Yehuda Nahari Halevi), a law student and a devoted Orthodox Jew, could not believe that his country’s leader would cede territory that he and many others believed was rightfully – by the word of God – theirs. As the prospect of a peaceful compromise approached, Amir turned from a hot-headed political activist to a dangerous extremist. Consumed by anger and delusions of grandeur, he recruited fighters and stole weapons to form an underground militia intent on killing Palestinians. After his longtime girlfriend left him, Amir became even more isolated, disillusioned, and bitter. He soon learned of an ancient Jewish law, the Law of the Pursuer, that he believed gave him the right to murder Yitzhak Rabin. Convinced he must stop the signing of the peace treaty in order to fulfill his destiny and bring salvation to his people, Amir’s warped mind saw only one way forward.

Incitement was the Best Picture winner at the Ophir Awards and Israel’s submission for Best International Feature Film at the 2020 Academy Awards.
