After the Holocaust when Israel was declared a state and Jews from across the diaspora began to make aliyah, an unexpected trouble began: the widespread outbreak of tuberculosis. Israeli-born Clevelander Judith Chasis Gerblich’s father was the doctor who worked to eradicate the disease. Join us for a 40-minute film on this important time in history and stay for a talk-back about the early days of Israel and the fight against infectious disease then and now.
