A Life Apart: Hasidism in America – Part 1 – 9
Hasidic Jews seem alien, and even hostile, to those outside their culture,which frequently includes other Jews. They dress differently, don’t mingle between the sexes, speak Yiddish, and wear side curls, all in an attempt to rigorously follow the commandments of the Torah. They tend to keep to themselves, shunning television and the media so outside influences cannot corrupt their values and views. Yet filmmakers Oren Rudavsky and Menachem Daum were able to enter their world, and the result is the fascinating documentary A Life Apart: Hasidism in America. Using interviews with academics and members of the community and some historical footage, the filmmakers trace the growth of Hasidic groups in the United States. Groups formed around particular Rebbes (learned leaders) and they took their names from their Eastern European home cities (the Satmar Hasids, the Breslov Hasids, and so on). Leonard Nimoy and Sarah Jessica Parker narrate, explaining how this movement came to America and how it was able to flourish. Dissenting voices also appear, in the form of neighborhood people who are distressed at the Hasids’ refusal to speak to members not in their community and of a young woman, Pearl Gluck, who left the community in order to pursue her writing and to follow a life of her own choosing. Many Hasids refuse to speak on camera, and we see many shielding themselves with hands or coats so as not to appear on film. But those who do appear are poignant in their discussions of why the Hasidic life is important to them. One man speaks to the directors, even as he acknowledges that he will never see the movie, but he will do it “in order to help a Jew make a living.” One couple, Holocaust survivors, are not Hasidic, but their children are, and the reasonings of both the parents and the children are interesting. This film, shown on PBS, is a consequential look into a lifestyle many of us don’t understand, and it may help in increasing an understanding.

Jewish Culture Festival in Krakow is the only opportunity to personally encounter and experience contemporary Jewish culture from Israel and the Diaspora, in the series of concerts, DJ-parties, lectures, workshops, film screenings, guided tours and discussions.
The program of the upcoming edition focuses on four elements. We will present one of the most interesting phenomenon: kibbutz. We will show how this idea has helped to build the State of Israel but also how it influenced all aspects of Israeli life: from cooking to architecture. Besdie presenting ashkenazic culture, created by the European Jews, that dominated perception of Jewish culture, we will present mizrahi culture – created by the Jews living in countries with Muslim majority – that is becoming more and more popular in Israel. 100 years after the first publication of An-Ski’s ‘The Dybbuk‘ – we will show how Jewish culture balances constantly between two worlds: traditional and contemporary, Jewish and non-Jewish, becoming one of the greatest phenomenon of contemporary world.
We invite you to Krakow’s Kazimierz, where Jewish culture has flourished for centuries and now has returned here again – also thanks to our festival! More details you can find under the links below.
Festival is held under the honorary patronage of H.E. Bronisław Komorowski President of the Republic of Poland. Małopolska Region is the main partner of the festival.
