“Body and Soul – The State of the Jewish Nation”, a feature documentary film by award-winning filmmaker Gloria Z. Greenfield, presents a comprehensive examination of the broad and deep connections between the Jewish People and the Land of Israel.
World-renowned historians, archaeologists, political scientists, religious leaders, and international law and media experts—including Rabbi Jonathan Sacks, Bret Stephens, Ruth Wisse, Yossi Klein Halevi, Einat Wilf, Alan Dershowitz, Robert Wistrich, Anita Shapira, Jonathan Sarna and others–trace the evocative evolution of the relationship between the Jewish People and their homeland that is more than 3,000 years old.
The New York Times applauds the film as a “skillful recounting of the Jewish people and their connection to the land of Israel…the film is as cogent as it is inspiring.” The Hollywood Reporter assesses that “this concise, informative documentary makes its passionate case with compelling scholarship.”
