        THE OTHER MEN IN BLACK Starring Fyvush Finkel and Suzy Kohane Presented by The Melton Center for Jewish Studies at The Ohio State University. Part of the Jewish History Media Project. ____________ "The Other Men In Black: The Hasidic Movement, Past and Present" is the first production of the Jewish History Media Project, an enterprise of the Melton Center for Jewish Studies, with the support of The Advanced Computing Center for the Arts and Design (ACCAD) at The Ohio State University. The goal of the Project is to create a series of docu-drama films about Jewish history that will serve as ignition points for a curriculum of Jewish history studies. The films will highlight various aspects of Jewish history using a narrative style, and are designed to engage high school, university, and adult learners in history topics that are often perceived as dry or unrelated to contemporary life. The focus of The Other Men in Black is the Hasidic movement in Judaism, which originated in eighteenth-century Ukraine and Poland. It seemed an ideal starting point because it has had an enormous impact on Judaism, it is still very much alive, and its musical and storytelling traditions are an excellent vehicle to showcase our multimedia format. Funding for "The Other Men in Black" has been generously provided by the Nathan Cummings Foundation.

          Genre: documentary / history Duration: 1 x 80’ or 1 x 60’ Producer/Director: Frédérique Cifuentes Where the Blue and the White Nile meet is known as the longest kiss in history. This is where the story of the Jews in the Sudan starts with eight Jewish families living under Egyptian-Turkish rule before 1880. In 1977 a group of Jewish people, having fled persecution in the Sudan during the 60’s, organised a highly secret mission to transfer the buried remains in the Jewish cemetery and the Torah Scrolls from Khartoum to Jerusalem. This film reveals the unusual journey of the sacred books away from the Sudan to make known how this most enigmatic community has kept its identity as, The Jews of Sudan. In 1945 the Jewish population of Sudan numbered near a thousand, today it is zero. ‘The Jews and the longest kiss in history’ is a journey through history told by those that experienced it at firsthand. The film chronicles life under the Mahdi, the effect of British imperialism on the community and the eventual exile and deliberate obliteration of all signs of Judaism in the Sudan. The filmmaker has gained unprecedented access to more than fifty members of the ex-Sudan Jewish community, informing the research. This is a story of a “white” Jewish minority located where the Arab world meets black Africa. The audience experience a moving visual journey revealed through a collection of archival images and home movies taken by the Sudanese Jews of the Sudanese Jews and the world around them. We see how the highly structured community played a large role in the economic development of the country. The interviewees reveal the dangerous and threatening conditions that sent them into exile. We witness them recount the emotions of fleeing the deteriorating situation; leaving behind their properties, businesses and a certain way of life, but always with the spirit of the community intact. The film centres on the intangible link that binds the community to this day, the Torah scrolls of Sudan, and the journey they and the people took to New York, London, Geneva and Jerusalem.

                These are photos of one of Israel's most visited areas. Masada is about 21/2 miles from the Dead Sea in the wilderness of Judah. It is an immense brown crag approximately a mile long and 220 yards wide. Herod the Great built a great fortification out of the huge plateau. It was designed to withstand any siege. When Jerusalem fell in 70 AD, a band of Jewish patriots made their way to Masada and successfully withstood the Romans for three years. Their leader was Eliezer Ben Yair, who challenged the group of zealots to die by their own hand rather than be captured. 960 men, women and children perished. Masada has become a shrine and a symbol to the new nation of Israel. It is one of my favorite places to spend time when I am in my Father's land. It is hard to comprehend that what I am seeing was built 2000 years ago. I pray you will enjoy.

                      Over the last 111 years, the Nusach Hari B’nai Zion Congregation in St. Louis, Missouri has reflected the greater story of Midwestern American Jewry in its many forms. Recently, the synagogue underwent a transformation as it moved from its home of the last sixty years, now falling to disrepair, to a new building- reflecting both a shrinking in congregation size and the migration of members to progressively more western suburban neighborhoods. Filmmaker Saul Sudin grew up attending Nusach H’ari B’nai Zion, and he weaves a portrait of how every inch of the now dilapidating older structure vibrates with history both personal and shared. Combined with personal reflection, Sudin traces the steps of how Nusach H’ari and the B’nai Zion congregation that merged with it have had many homes over the years. In visiting sites past, present and future, the history of the community as a whole unfolds. In the summer of 2011, synagogue president Robert Kaiser guided the filmmaker through the still under construction new building. Kaiser revealed how the new Nusach H’ari reflects the 21st century not only in religious motifs, but also through cutting edge technologies being employed to make a highly efficient, energy conscious “green” structure. Just before the high holidays, the parade of Torahs, carried by longtime members, made their way to the newly completed synagogue as they cemented the future of congregation Nusach H’ari B’nai Zion. The new location will undoubtedly be yet another stepping stone to whatever the future holds.
