The Chosen People--A Film & Discussion About Jewish Identity

Join Rabbi Dennis Eisner to study this provocative theme.

This film thoughtfully illuminates the complexities of Jewish identity today. Multiple voices are allowed to speak, and each sheds light on the history, theology, and debates surrounding Judaism—its faith and people. Jew and non-Jew alike will profit from this film!
— Rabbi David Ellenson, Chancellor Emeritus of Hebrew Union College-Jewish Institute of Religion
