UMAN...Comes from HUMAN?


In my last post -- which may be continued at some point -- I was a gift giver. 'Tis better to give than to receive is the general consensus.

I "gave" A Simple Jew a trip to Uman for Rosh Hashanah and a journal and videocam with which to record his adventures.

In response, he gave me a link to a video. This video is a sneak preview of a documentary filmed by Hollywood director Paul Mazursky. I was in awe that Paul had taken on such a project. But I think he probably has a lot to say and show in his work, and I look forward to seeing it at some point in time. Just put it on the "To See" list alongside "Ushpizin" and "When Do We Eat?"

So, folks, in the meantime, you and I can both view a trailer for "Yippee"!

Pearl, thanks for reminding me about those movies...I'm always looking for something new to rent...since going to the movies seems to be a thing of the past for me

CM & Pearl: Ushpizin is a great movie. If you can and have other Israeli movies to rent , try to get "Mashehu matok (something sweet)" it is an amazing movie, so sweet and warm and beautiful. Otherwise I can send them to you once I am back in Hungary :D (I would definitely do that but it would be much later than Sukkoth!!!)

Mia: I'll keep an eye out for the Hebrew film -- at the local library (they have a fair number of Hebrew books and tapes and films) or video store.

CM: You can come over and watch the films at my house!
