A Life Apart: Hasidism in America
(DVD)

DIRECTED BY - Menachem Daum, Oren Rudavsky


Seven years in the making, A LIFE APART examines a world few outsiders get to see--the world of the Hasidim. With their use of Yiddish, their distinctive clothes, and their strict adherence to Jewish ritual and law, this enlightening documentary shows how the Hasidim's values coincide with those of most Americans--highly valuing family, community, and a life of meaning.
