Touchdown Israel


Sunday, April 19, 2015
5:00 pm - 7:15 pm


Here’s the improbable story of the IFL, an American-style football league that’s thriving in a most unexpected place. Tracking a season, this lively documentary reveals in microcosm the patchwork quilt of Israeli society as Jews, Muslims, and Christians— many new to the sport—suit up, compete, and build friendships on a quest for Israel Bowl glory.

April 19, 5:00 Q&A Jay Fiedler and Alex Swieca with Don Sperling. 

Jay Fiedler’s 10-year NFL career as a quarterback included playing for the Miami Dolphins and the NY Jets. He was inducted into the National Jewish Museum Sports Hall of Fame in 2002. Alex Swieca was MVP for the Israel Bowl Champions Judean Rebels and is now a senior at Michigan where he was quarterback for the Wolverine’s Sugar Bowl winning 2011 season. Don Sperling is VP and Executive Producer for New York Giants Entertainment.

Presented in partnership with The Sports Academy at Brookwood Camps
