Exploring the religion’s history, culture and philosophy and considering what Judaism means in the modern world.

Jewish Studies Collection

  • Night Will Fall
    Night Will Fall | Director: Andre Singer  
    Year of production: 2014 | Country of production: Denmark, Israel, United Kingdom, USA | Language: English, Hebrew, Russian (with full English subtitles available)

    Night Will Fall tells the story of the liberation of the German Concentration Camps. Using remarkable archive footage and testimony from both survivors and liberators, it tells of the efforts made to document the almost unbelievable scenes that the Allies encountered on liberation.
    The film explores how a team of top filmmakers, including Sidney Bernstein, Richard Crossman and Alfred Hitchcock, came together to make a film to provide undeniable evidence of what the Allies found, but the film was stopped in its tracks by the British Government and only now 70 years on, has it been completed. Each new generation deserves access to this evidence.

  • A Match Made in Heaven
    A Match Made in Heaven | Director: Ronnie Kay  
    Year of production: 2014 | Country of production: Israel | Language: Hebrew (with full English subtitles available)

    Dating and matchmaking in the “Haredi” (ultra-orthodox Jewish) world has always been mysterious and intriguingly different from the secular world. At a time when the institution of marriage in the modern secular world is about to go bankrupt – increasing divorce rates, infidelity, the trend of extended bachelorhood, single parenting, etc. – the question arises: where are we going wrong? And what is it about Haredi relationships that keeps them strong and stable? How does it work?

  • Why the Jews?
    Why the Jews? | Director: John Curtin  
    Year of production: 2018 | Country of production: Canada | Language: English (with full English subtitles available)

    The stunning social, scientific and artistic accomplishments of the Jews raise an obvious question. How do they do it? From Shimon Peres to Judit Polgar and Dr. Ruth, from Noam Chomsky to Daniel Libeskind and Alan Dershowitz, some of the world’s most accomplished Jews tackle a mystery shrouded in ignorance and prejudice. This film tears back the curtain on a taboo and draws a startling link between Jewish exceptionalism and the Holocaust.

  • The Muses of Bashevis Singer
    The Muses of Bashevis Singer | Director: Shaul Betser and Asaf Galay  
    Year of production: 2014 | Country of production: Israel | Language: English, Hebrew (with full English subtitles available)

    Isaac Bashevis Singer, the famous Yiddish writer and Nobel Prize winner wrote with a ‘harem’ of dozens of translators behind him. Beyond simple translators, these women were a vital source of his creativity. The inspiration he drew from them came in many forms, often mixing romance with professional aspirations. Today nine remain to tell his story. Intimate, poignant interviews and exclusive archival footage combine to form the unknown story of an author who charmed and enchanted his audiences, just as he charmed and enchanted his translators. A film about the art of translation and one of the great figures of twentieth century literature.

  • RBG
    RBG | Director: Betsy West   Julie Cohen  
    Year of production: 2018 | Country of production: USA | Language: English (with full English subtitles available)

    At the age of 85, U.S. Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg has developed a breathtaking legal legacy while becoming an unexpected pop culture icon. But without a definitive Ginsburg biography, the unique personal journey of this diminutive, quiet warrior’s rise to the nation’s highest court has been largely unknown, even to some of her biggest fans – until now. RBG is a revelatory documentary exploring Ginsburg ‘s exceptional life and career from Betsy West and Julie Cohen.

  • Café Nagler
    Café Nagler | Director: Mor Kaplansky  
    Year of production: 2015 | Country of production: Israel | Language: English, German, Hebrew (with full English subtitles available)

    During the 1920s, Café Nagler was the hottest place in Berlin. Mor, the film’s director embarks on a journey to find out what’s left of her family’s legendary café. Her grandmother follows the filming with great anticipation. When Mor discovers the true story behind the café, she is unable to break her grandmother’s heart and looks for a creative solution. Café Nagler is a film about memory, about our need for family myths and about our longing for a different past.

  • The Women Pioneers
    The Women Pioneers | Director: Michal Aviad  
    Year of production: 2012 | Country of production: Israel | Language: Hebrew (with full English subtitles available)

    A hundred years ago, women pioneers came from Europe to Palestine, to realize the dream of creating a new woman in a new world, a woman who is as independent as men are. The women pioneers have left diaries and texts which tell their stories. Their writings shed new light on the archival footage of the time. The Women/Pioneers uncovers the course of their passionate battles and painful disappointments, until they were defeated, and gave up their own liberation for the national struggle.

Emmy award-winning and Academy award-nominated, PROMISES follows the journey of a filmmaker who meets these children in and around Jerusalem, from a Palestinian refugee camp to an Israeli settlement in the West Bank. Although they live only 20 minutes apart, these children exist in completely separate worlds, divided by physical, historical and emotional boundaries. PROMISES explores the nature of these boundaries and tells the story of a few children who dared to cross the lines to meet their neighbors.
