Streaming Video - 2006
Rate this:
While Judaic orthodoxy may sometimes appear rigid and conservative, the traditional Jewish home is a warm, dynamic place full of nurturing and hospitality. This program visits several such households that closely observe Jewish law, demonstrating the profound connection between the mitzvot and Jewish family life. Viewers are treated to engaging visual demonstrations of what makes a kitchen kosher-including the presence of two ovens, two sinks, and two refrigerators-and the hectic yet dutiful preparations for Shabbat that many Jewish families undergo every week. Although it avoids graphic details, the program begins by attending a ritual circumcision.
