The alliance of the Irish, fatherless boy and the Rabbi is something that we should look to in a world where alliances are becoming more important. In a world where diversity should be celebrated and seen as an opportunity to learn and grow, while still maintaining identity, this would serve as a good movie for students and young people to see.
