Two Great Jewish Movies

by Steve Ray on January 3, 2015

Since we are in Jerusalem, I thought I would share two of our favorite Jewish movies.

Recently watched “Everything is Illuminated” again. It is funny and profound about a young man (Elijah Wood – Frodo in “Lord of the Rings”) who discovers his Jewish past after Nazi fascists occupied Ukraine. It is one of my favorite movies. There are a few distasteful scenes but overall a very funny and worthwhile movie.

Another of our favorite movies is ” Ushpizin” a modern day Abraham and Sarah story set in modern Jerusalem, a quarter mile from our favorite hotel near the New Gate in the Old City of Jerusalem. I run through this area of religious Jews. i LOVE the way the movies portrays their relationship with God.
