Re-Emerging:  The Jews of Nigeria

Jeff L. Lieberman, Director, Writer and Producer
““Re-Emerging:  The Jews of Nigeria” is a journey into the heart of Igboland and into the lives and culture of the Igbo people. The film introduces the world to the many synagogues that dot the land, and a handful of passionate, committed, and diverse characters—each striving to fulfill their historical legacy with a few resources and unbeknownst to most of the world. Individual stories are woven together with key facets of history, tracing the Igbo from Biblical times up to the brutal 1960s Biafran War, which killed over 1 million Igbo . . .

“Re-Emerging” challenges the boundaries between faith and color, and engages viewers to think about ancestry, identity, race, diversity and acceptance.”

This DVD is available to SASAASAS member institutions.
