This is a documentary produced by Salt & Light Media Foundation, Toronto, Canada. It depicts the societal role and impact the faculty and students of one of our Lasallian Catholic universities,Bethlehem University, located in Palestine.
"Across the Divide tells the remarkable, provocative story of the first Catholic Institution of Higher Learning in Palestine. Against all odds, Bethlehem University has become a school of justice and peace in the Holy Land, and a real bridge among many different groups of people: Arab and Israeli, Christian, Muslim and Jew," says Father Thomas Rosica, CSB, CEO of Salt and Light Catholic Media Foundation. "In a part of the world that has known so much conflict, animosity, monologue and despair, the Catholic Church's presence through Bethlehem University has offered a model of peace, friendship, dialogue and hope for the world."
