The Eighth Day: Circumcision/Hanukkah
This historical drama, set in the time of the Maccabees almost 2200 years ago, highlights the conflict between traditional and assimilating Jews. A mother and father must decide whether to circumcise their son, in defiance of Greek edict. An intriguing glimpse into the period.

"An optimistic tale of survival...Highly recommended!"-Avi West, Bureau of Jewish Education, Washington DC

The Journey: Bar Mitzvah/Jewish Identity
Leningrad, 1939. A Russian Jewish youth is about to turn thirteen and a visiting American, not terribly knowledgeable as a Jew, is placed in the uncomfortable position of preparing the youth for his Bar Mitzvah.  This drama provides for a timeless exploration of Jewish commitment and continuity, while providing a glimpse into Soviet Jewish life.

"The viewer will...be affected on an emotional level by the discussion between the two characters. This video production is well acted and the photography is excellent...It will be a moving viewing experience."
