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.
