Millions of American Evangelicals are praying for the State of Israel. Among them are the Binghams, a dynasty of Kentucky pastors, and their Evangelical congregants in an impoverished coal mining town. They donate to pro-Israel philanthropic organizations because they fervently believe that Jews are crucial to Jesus’s return.
The 2020 documentary ‘Til Kingdom Come (76 minutes, English, no subtitles) traces this unusual relationship between American Evangelicals and Israel. Director Maya Zinshtein follows the connection from rural Kentucky to the halls of government in Washington, exposing a stunning backstory where financial, political, and messianic motivations intersect with an apocalyptic worldview that is reshaping American foreign policy toward the Middle East.
The film will be screened in person in the Museum’s Edmond J. Safra Hall. Tickets are $5 each for Museum members or $10 each for the general public. If you’re not a member, join today. If you’re already a member, log in and the member discount will be reflected in your cart.
