Against all odds, an aggressive new sport is playing out in the Israel’s stadiums. Weekend warriors team up, suit up, don helmets over their kippahs, and charge the field in a season of full-contact American Tackle Football, revealing pieces of themselves and their world along the way. Secular or religious, Israeli-born or not, these Jews, Muslims and Christians are transformed from ordinary citizens into fierce gridiron competitors on a quest for Israel Bowl glory.
