San Francisco-based Aaron Davidman was 25 years old when he first visited Israel in 1992. The experience resonated deeply with him, he says, as a progressive American Jew trying to wrap his head around the Israeli- Palestinian conflict. That struggle was the basis of his 2014 play “Wrestling Jerusalem,” a one-man show starring Davidman as 17 different characters from various sides of the conflict. The play, which Davidman wrote, was recently turned into a film and premieres this month at the San Francisco Jewish Film Festival.
