Emperors and Rebels: The Story of Hanukah

Asaf Golan gives us the historical background that most of us never learned about Judah Maccabee and the Hasmonean Revolt. This 2-part biographical documentary chronicles the life and times of the eccentric Seleucid king, Antiochus Epiphanes (Part I), and the defiant rebel Judah, son of Mattathias (Part II). Digital combat re-creation sequences and world renowned paintings serve as the backdrop for understanding the events that led to the war of freedom which began in 168 B.C.E. These well-researched programs feature historians Stanley M. Burstein, Doron Mendels, Erich S. Gruen and Lawrence H. Schiffman. Everything you always wanted to know about the Hanukah story, but were afraid to ask!

The DVD has additional pedagogic information, drawn from a variety of texts and sources. Both programs are on one DVD.

The Mishkan
Following the Exodus from Egypt, the children of Israel were commanded, "Make me a sanctuary and I shall dwell among you." The Mishkan was the portable forerunner of the Temple, located in the center of their encampment in the desert. Using computer generated graphics, this video enables us to view all the components of the Mishkan from the Boards (Krashim) to the Sockets (Adanim), from the Holy of Holies (Kodesh Hakodashim) to the alters, from the eight garments worn by the High Priest (Kohen Gadol) to the four garments of the regular Priests (the Cohen Hediot). And much much more. This video is unprecedented in its ability to teach this fascinating subject matter in a fun and informative manner.

Wake The Dawn: The Story of the Temple 
King David sought a sacred home for the Ark of the Covenant and chose what has become known as the Temple Mount in Jerusalem, on which the first and second Holy Temples would later be built.  Through the use of animation and documentary footage, we learn about the physical and spiritual dimensions of the 'Beit Hamikdash'. Biblical, Talmudic and Midrashic sources contribute to our greater understanding of the centrality of the Temple in Jewish life and prayer.
