INTERNATIONAL PREMIERE Founded by Rabbi Meir Kahane in New York City in 1968, the Jewish Defense League advocates any means necessary to stop antisemitism. Once considered the most active terrorist organization in the United States for its use of armed response and preventative violence, the JDL is currently led by Shelley Rubin. With candor, Mother with a Gun charts Rubin’s path to extremism, relaying how an archetypal good Jewish girl defied family and community expectations for love and purpose – at a deep personal cost.
