Ayn Hawd was a Palestinian village that was captured and depopulated by Israeli forces in the 1948 war. In 1953 the village was transformed into a Jewish artists' colony, and renamed Ein Hod. This documentary tells the story of the village's original inhabitants, who, after expulsion, settled only 1.5 kilometers away in the outlying hills. This new Ayn Hawd cannot be found on official maps, as Israeli law does not recognize it.

The Haggadot commissioned by wealthy patrons in the Middle Ages are among the most beautifully decorated Hebrew manuscripts, and The 'Brother' Haggadah - so-called because of its close relationship to The Rylands Haggadah in the collection of the John Rylands Library, Manchester - is one of the finest of these to have survived. Created by Sephardi - or southern - artists and scribes in Catalonia in the second quarter of the 14th century, it sets out the liturgy and sequence of the Passover Seder, a ritual feast by which Jewish families give thanks for the liberation of the Israelites from slavery in ancient Egypt as described in the Book of Exodus. This finely produced facsimile edition begins with an introduction by medieval scholar Professor Marc Michael Epstein, who sets out the background to the Passover and provides an analysis of the manuscript's iconographic scheme. Following are essays on the provenance of The 'Brother' Haggadah by Ilana Tahan, head of the Hebrew and Christian collections at the British Library, and on the Shaltiel family, former owners of the manuscript, by Hebrew scholar Eliezer Laine. The book also contains a translation of the poems and commentary in the manuscript by the late Raphael Lowe, former Goldsmid Professor of Hebrew at University College London, and a translation of the Haggadah liturgy.

The 1967 'Six-Day' war ended with Israel's decisive victory; conquering Jerusalem, Gaza, Sinai and the West Bank. It is a war portrayed, to this day, as a righteous undertaking; a radiant emblem of Jewish pride. One week after the war, a group of young kibbutzniks, led by renowned author Amos Oz, recorded intimate conversations with soldiers returning from the battlefield. The recording revealed an honest look at the moment Israel turned from David to Goliath.

"בספר זה נטען שהרמב"ם היה משוכנע שתורת ישראל מלמדת שבני אדם כולם נבראו בצלם אלוהים ושאין הבדל ממשי, מהותי ומולד בין ישראל לעמים. טענה זו מנוגדת לתפיסה הדומיננטית ביהדות המסורתית מאז ימי הביניים, ובעיקר מאז תחילת האמנציפציה, שגייסה את הרמב"ם לתמוך בגישות פרטיקולריסטיות. לדעתו של מנחם קלנר, תפיסה זו היא סילוף המציאות, ויש בה ממד טרגי. כמובן, ישנם הבדלים בין ישראל לעמים אבל לטענת קלנר, אליבא דרמב"ם ההבדלים הם ברמה של חוקים, של היסטוריה, של ייעוד, ותו לא ... ספר זה מציע קריאה צמודה מאוד של ההלכה הראשונה, ההלכה האמצעית, וההלכה האחרונה ב'משנה תורה' ... הפרק הפותח את הספר מסביר את האוניברסליזם של הרמב"ם באמצעות ניתוח מאמרי חז"ל שמהם היה יכול הרמב"ם לשאוב את רעיונותיו האוניברסליים. הפרק האחרון מתמודד עם דברי הרמב"ם הסותרים, לכאורה, את העמדה שמייחס לו קלנר לאורך כל הספר. באחרית דבר חורג המחבר מקריאה צמודה של דברי הרמב"̄ם ומביע את עמדותיו שלו נוכח המציאות של ימינו" -- back cover.
