Despite centuries of suffering and displacement, the fabric of Jewish culture has never broken. This program examines the theme of survival and its connection to Jewish achievements. Viewers will encounter a wide range of topics, including the origins of Judaism, the world's first major monotheistic religion; the flourishing of Jewish scholarship through Talmudic learning and Rabbinic Judaism; the golden age of Jewish creativity at the height of Islamic power; and the post-Holocaust continuity of the Jews as a people, a state, and a collective voice. Archival images and documents accompany interviews with Nobel laureate Elie Wiesel, Prof. Alan Dershowitz of Harvard University, Prof. Lawrence H. Schiffman of NYU, Prof. Christine Hayes of Yale, Rabbi Brad Hirschfield of the National Jewish Center for Learning and Leadership, and others.
