Upheaval Aspen

On Thursday, January 13, 2023, 90 supporters joined together in the resort town of Aspen, Colorado to raise funds for JOIN Lifeline at the Aspen premiere of Upheaval: The Journey of Menachem Begin. The fundraiser was a partnership with Aspen Film and sponsored by Hidden Light Productions.

The reception was generously hosted by the renowned Hexton Gallery. Guests enjoyed the contemporary art, drinks, and hors d’oeuvres by Chef Stanley Coriat. A highlight of the evening was a speech made by JOIN Israel’s President of the Board of Directors, Bryan Weingarten on his personal commitment to JOIN Lifeline and with the goal to grow the project.

After the reception, guests enjoyed a screening of the film Upheaval: The Journey of Menachem Begin at Isis Theater. Before the film, attendees watched a short on JOIN Lifeline and heard from JOIN Israel’s Executive Director, Stephen Bisk.

Following the film there was a Q&A discussion with Susan Wrubel (Executive + Artistic Director of Aspen Film and Industry Executive & Film Producer) and Rob Schwartz (Executive Producer of Upheaval and Founder of Hidden Light Productions).
