J WEEKLY -- Eric Goldbrener, on the other hand, grew up with a strong Jewish identity as the son of an Israeli father in an ardently Zionist household. As a film student at San Francisco State University, he formed the Zionist Student Body, the only pro-Israel campus group at the time. The group, which he describes as “radically liberal,” called on the Israeli government to recognize the PLO. He has worked in film production, high tech and information systems for the last 25 years. Goldbrener is also working on a film, “Revolt,” based on former Israeli Prime Minister Menachem Begin’s account of the Irgun, the underground guerrilla force in pre-state Israel.
