Voices from the Heartland: Shofar

Directed by: Daniel Syrkin
89 Minutes, 2001

The Zakutas are a poor, ultra-orthodox family from the slums of Bnei Brak. Amram, a Torah scholar, earns a living writing mezuzot, while his wife cares for their autistic son. One afternoon, their son enters a neighbor’s apartment and a miracle occurs. A huge crowd gathers around the home of the Zakuta family, changing their lives forever.
