THE

INCREDIBLE

STORY OF THE JEWISH PEOPLE


MADE FOR TV MOVIE    
THE DISPUTATION

Jeffrey R. Woolf 1986 (1.02.53)

(From imdb)   In 1263, King James I of Aragon organizes a debate between representatives of Judaism and Christianity regarding whether or not Jesus was the Messiah.


Christopher Lee's performance as the King of Aragon, whose fairness and basic decency overcome his piety, is the standout here. At the request of the Catholic establishment, he sets up a "disputation" (public debate) between the leader of the local Jewish community and a Jewish convert now esteemed as a brilliant clergyman. The Jewish leader sees all too well that even (or especially) if he wins, he'll lose, but the King pushes him with well-meant promises to do the right thing. The King finds to his sorrow that the consequences are not entirely within his control. It's unfortunate that the veteran Lee has rarely had such occasion to demonstrate his very real talent.

THE SEPHARDIC PARADOX"
WHY NO REFORM & CONSERVATIVE MOVEMENTS IN SEPHARDIC JEWS?
Rabbi Haim Ovadia 2015  (42.10)

Have you ever wondered why there are no Reform or Conservative denominations among Sephardim? Is it because all Sephardim are Orthodox or that all Sephardim are pluralists? Where is the Sephardic world heading to,
and what lessons can we learn
from its recent history?

(english subtitles)
ALEA docs & films  2017 (1.21.30)
