Imprisoned by the Soviets. Orphaned by the Holocaust. Elected Prime Minister of Israel. Crowned peacemaker by the Nobel Prize Committee. Disgraced by the Lebanon War. Each of these is true of Menachem Begin, who was a pillar of the State of Israel and a tireless fighter for the Jewish people.

Explore Begin’s life and legacy in Upheaval: the Journey of Menachem Begin (88 minutes, English, no subtitles), a captivating new documentary from writer and director Jonathan Gruber.

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.
