          My graduation film from the animation department at Bezalel Academy of Art and Design in Jerusalem The film deals with the question whether it is possible to adapt every child to one specific mold? In an enclosed city, in which everyone looks the same and follows the same path, in which everything is done according to the books--one girl sprouts wings. The idea that their daughter will be "strange" in their society is too difficult for the family. They feel they cannot allow the difference to continue to grow, and must therefore fit her into the existing framework. Now the girl must face her difference and choose between her family and her freedom.

            Hagia Sophia (from the Greek: Ἁγία Σοφία, "Holy Wisdom"; Latin: Sancta Sophia or Sancta Sapientia; Turkish: Aya Sofya) is a former Orthodox patriarchal basilica, later a mosque, and now a museum in Istanbul, Turkey. From the date of its dedication in 360 until 1453, it served as the cathedral of Constantinople, except between 1204 and 1261, when it was converted to a Roman Catholic cathedral under the Latin Patriarch of Constantinople of the Western Crusader established Latin Empire. The building was a mosque from 29 May 1453 until 1934, when it was secularized. It was opened as a museum on 1 February 1935.[1] The Church was dedicated to the Logos, the second person of the Holy Trinity,[2] its dedication feast taking place on December 25, the anniversary of the incarnation of the Logos in Christ.[2] Although it is sometimes referred to as Sancta Sophia (as though it were named after Saint Sophia), sophia is the phonetic spelling in Latin of the Greek word for wisdom - the full name in Greek being Ναός τῆς Ἁγίας τοῦ Θεοῦ Σοφίας, "Church of the Holy Wisdom of God".[3][4] Famous in particular for its massive dome, it is considered the epitome of Byzantine architecture and is said to have "changed the history of architecture."[5] It was the largest cathedral in the world for nearly a thousand years, until Seville Cathedral was completed in 1520. The current building was originally constructed as a church between 532 and 537 on the orders of the Byzantine Emperor Justinian and was the third Church of the Holy Wisdom to occupy the site, the previous two having both been destroyed by rioters. It was designed by Isidore of Miletus, a physicist, and Anthemius of Tralles, a mathematician.[6] The church contained a large collection of holy relics and featured, among other things, a 49 foot (15 m) silver iconostasis. It was the seat of the Patriarch of Constantinople and the religious focal point of the Eastern Orthodox Church for nearly one thousand years. It is the church in which Cardinal Humbert in 1054 excommunicated Michael I Cerularius - which is commonly considered the start of the Great Schism. In 1453, Constantinople was conquered by the Ottoman Turks under Sultan Mehmed II, who subsequently ordered the building converted into a mosque.[7] The bells, altar, iconostasis, and sacrificial vessels were removed and many of the mosaics were plastered over. Islamic features — such as the mihrab, minbar, and four minarets — were added while in the possession of the Ottomans. It remained a mosque until 1935, when it was converted into a museum by the Republic of Turkey. For almost 500 years the principal mosque of Istanbul, Hagia Sophia served as a model for many other Ottoman mosques, such as the Sultan Ahmed Mosque (Blue Mosque of Istanbul), the Şehzade Mosque, the Süleymaniye Mosque, the Rüstem Pasha Mosque and the Kılıç Ali Paşa Mosque.

              "Республика Православных" "The republic of Orthodoxy" Multimedia by Oleg Klimov|Liberty.SU Metropolitan Kirill acknowledged the role of human rights in the liberation of Russia from communism and confirmed that respect for human rights continues to be the “central norm” of the legislation of the newly independent post-Soviet states. “Thanks to the universal acceptance of human rights, we were freed from the shackles of godlessness,” he said. “But the concept of human rights in the form that is being enshrined in national and international legislation right now raises many question. Doesnt this concept contradicts God’s design for a man and human diginty?”

                This isn't a how-to. This is about what Jews actually do. Beards. Wigs. Noses. Yarmulkes. Hair extensions. USY sweaters..... Half slice-of-life and half anthropology, "How Jews Look" explores what Jews look like and what that means to us. Are we ashamed? Do we love it? Are big noses really sexy?
