Voice of Jerusalem

Director: Ofer naim.
Those who remember Jerusalem in its splendor have called it the city of gold. It is a city remembered for its glorious past but with no future. Instead of dealing with the present, people remain involved in the past. This is what stands in the way of Jerusalem’s survival. What happened to “Jerusalem of Gold”? Is there any hope or solution to the problems surrounding Jerusalem? Which of the three religions should have the right to control Jerusalem? Should Jerusalem be the capital city? Maybe all that is happening in Jerusalem stems from the ”Jerusalem Syndrome” that causes one to lose touch with reality and ones stability. Did Israel and Jerusalem’s leaders suffer from this syndrome as well? This movie tries to answer many of these questions talking to a number of people from various walks of life in this unique city and through the many songs sung longingly about this city, over time.

Israeli comedies add zest to Warsaw Jewish Motifs Fest

user
In the past two years the subject matter of this festival concentrated heavily on themes of the Holocaust and Polish-Jewish relations. This year the program is of a spicier variety with a heavier than usual input of films from Israel. The big discovery and surprise so far has been a rib-tickling comedy from Israel entitled "Like a Fish Out of Water" (RT, 56 minutes) by 28 year old helmer Leon Pudovsky. The story centers on a freewheeling Argentine immigrant to Israel, a thoroughly unkosher Lat...
