“Fog,” a documentary about the quest to unravel the fate of an Israeli Druze soldier, lost during the 1973 Yom Kippur War, will be shown as part of the Israeli Voices film series. Free and open to the public, the screening will take place at 7 p.m. in Textor 101.
A fascinating story of bereavement and mysticism, “Fog” tells the story of Mu’in Halabi, an Israeli soldier who disappeared during a battle with the Syrians at the beginning of the 1973 Yom Kippur War. The Israeli Defense Forces later announced that his body had been found, and a casket was buried in his hometown, the Druze village of Daliat el-Carmel.
The “Israeli Voices” film series is sponsored by the Jewish Studies program at Ithaca College with support from alumnus Steven Weiss ’91.
