AMERICAN LIVES: JEWISH STORIES
$29.95
This documentary uses personal stories to explore the challenges and joys of being Jewish in America. The stories are meant to challenge you, not necessarily to provide answers. The first episode takes place in a Jewish summer camp in Wisconsin. Three teens contrast their diverse Jewish backgrounds with this unique Jewish summer camp experience. Next, a 23 year-old Boston woman describes her personal struggle as someone with a strong Jewish upbringing, in love with a Catholic man. Finally, a Baltimore mother recounts her spiritual journey back to Judaism and how this continues to impact her daily family life. An excellent trigger film! "An engaging look at issues surrounding Jewish identity in contemporary America; this is recommended."—Video Librarian 46 MIN. (INCLUDES COLOR STUDY GUIDE)
