Light My Fire

Because Hanukkah is around Christmas, and so since they have ‘Merry Christmas,’ they think we should be in ‘Happy Hanukkah.’ But we don’t really have happy, here in the Jews. For one thing, it’s dangerous. History shows that as soon as we get happy, what happens? Cossacks ride over the hill, and there’s a pogrom. So we try to keep the happy to a minimum. Otherwise some goyim will say: ‘Hey, look over there. Some Jews being happy! We need to put a stop to that! Let’s go!’”

Documentary Day

documentary: a presentation expressing or dealing with factual events

Documentary Film is a broad category of visual expression that is based on the attempt, in one fashion or another, to document reality. Knowledge comes in different ways through our five senses. Hearing, watching, touching, smelling and tasting are the only doorways to the outer world. The wise men say that if something is not truly experienced with all our five senses, the experience will be partial, not total. Therefore in a way almost all our gained knowledge through life is partial.

So all the films below the fold offer a partial look at: first our problems, and then some possible solutions. Hope you find one or more of interest and value.
