Film about Ugandan Jews to air on cable
September 5th, 2003
Moving Heaven and Earth, a new film documenting the conversion to Judaism of the Abayudaya, a small group of Ugandans, will air on the Hallmark Channel on Sunday, Oct. 5, at noon.
The one-hour documentary chronicles the multi-generational struggles of the Abayudaya and culminates with the 2002 conversion of some 300 of its members by four American rabbis and a rabbinical student from the Jewish Theological Seminary of America.
Produced by Diva Communications for Faith & Values Media, the film was directed and narrated by Debra Gonsher Vinik, Ph.D. The project was directed under the auspices of JTS.
