Director Fetes Two Cultures in 'Shalom Ireland'

"Shalom Ireland," director Valerie Lapin Ganley's documentary about Ireland's small but vibrant jewish community, manages to convey a huge amount of information about the past, present, and future of Ireland's Jewry, a community whose existence takes many by surprise.  The film showing in festivals around the U.S. in the coming months, creates a memorable, lyrical portrait of a people at a crossroads.
