Three Weeks Film Screening - "More Precious Than Pearls"

a film by Shearith Israel member, Robert "Naftali" Friedman

Wednesday, July 31, 7:00PM

Faith after the Holocaust is a theme that is rarely touched upon in Holocaust-related documentaries, let alone examined deeply. In this film, Shearith Israel member Naftali Friedman attempts to explore these ideas through the life of his father, Alex Friedman, a survivor of Nazi concentration camps. The film examines how Alex succeeded in achieving self-renewal as a human being and as a committed Jew, without forgetting the vivid, yet incomprehensibly painful memories of the past.
