Description: 

Directed by Edward B. Gerard.

This film features Yom Kippur services at two synagogues, Te-mple Beth El in Great Neck NY and Temple Israel in Hollywood. It was filmed on the day of the Yom Kippur War in Israel. The film is intercut with scenes of persecution of Jews in an attempt to connect the war that was raging to a historical line of persecutions. The film also features a chilling instrumental rendition of Kol Nidrei played on the cello by world famous cellist, Gregor Piatigorsky.
