Event: Be’chol Lashon Co-Sponsors The Longing at the SFJFF

Be’chol Lashon is pleased to co-sponsor a film at the 2007 San Francisco Jewish Film Festival.

The Longing: The Forgotten Jews of South America
Gabriela Bohm, Israel, USA, 2006, 75 min.

The poignant and inspiring story of six South Americans who long to affirm their Jewish faith against all odds. They believe they are among millions descended from crypto-Jews, immigrants to the Americas who secretly practiced Judaism despite centuries of draconian prohibition during the Spanish Inquisition. Now their descendants wish to reclaim a heritage and a faith long buried, but face resistance from both within and outside the Jewish community.
