As long As I Live

Material Type: 

Directed by Edgar Hirshbain


This film portrays the rituals of many of the Jewish holidays. Unfortunately, in most of the scenes of prayers, the soundtrack does not coincide with the prayers themselves and thus the music of each holiday is not heard. The two exemptions are the Lag B'omer Hilula celebrations at Rabbi Shimon Bar Yochai's grave at Mt. Meion and the Simchat Torah dancing at a synagogue.
