Tony Michels - Historian, University of Wisconsin: “Jews placed so much hope in emancipation, in communism, in revolution, in socialism, in liberalism, in Zionism, all these things that were supposed to solve the existential problems of Jews, and all of them turned out to be, in one way or another, problematic, all of them.”

Between Two Worlds the Movie

Critics Say...

“A passionate, poignant and beautiful film, BETWEEN TWO WORLDS is a must see not only for American Jews, but for anyone who has experienced the turmoil of generational change. Linking intimate family stories with insights about current community conflicts, it will open up a space for much-needed dialogue."
-Diane Wolf, Professor of Sociology & Director of Jewish Studies, UC Davis
