DENVER–(BUSINESS WIRE)–#InOurHands1967–Fifty years ago, following a 20-year Jordanian occupation, Jerusalem was

events will be brought to the big screen. With personal accounts,

Paratrooper Brigade is celebrated in the feature-length docudrama, IN
OUR HANDS: The Battle for Jerusalem
.” This special, one-night
event comes to U.S. movie theaters on Tuesday, May 23 at 7:00 p.m. local

Following the feature, CBN CEO Gordon Robertson will share the

Less than 20 years after reforming as a nation, Israel was on the verge
of extinction, but six days in early June 1967 changed the course of
history. “IN OUR HANDS” tells the story of Israel’s 55th
Paratrooper Brigade and how Israel’s defense forces risked everything
for the sake of their homeland. With firsthand interviews and historical
reenactments, this powerful docudrama focuses on the commitment and
sacrifice of the soldiers who brought Jerusalem back under Israeli
control. Israel still celebrates Jerusalem Day every year in remembrance
of these historic events known as the Reunification of Jerusalem.

’IN OUR HANDS: The Battle for Jerusalem’ features the untold and
unparalleled tenacity of Israeli forces,” Fathom Events CEO John Rubey
said. “This significant moment in Israel’s history will be featured on
the big screen across the U.S. in stunning detail, the day before
Israelis celebrate Jerusalem Day.”

“To know this story is to have to tell it, particularly on the 50th
anniversary of the event,” CBN CEO Gordon Robertson said. “From the very
Israeli paratroopers who fought it, IN OUR HANDS unveils the
surprise victory that returned to the Jews the Old City of Jerusalem and
the Western Wall of the old Temple. One soldier called it ‘the returning
to the nation its heart.’ Most accounts of the Six-Day War are straight
documentaries, and The Battle of Ammunition Hill is a sentence or two.
No film we know of actually recreates these pivotal scenes and events
with such intense accuracy. For new generations of Jews and Christians, IN
is a must-see.”
