Faith & Fate: The Story of the Jewish People in the 20th Century - Episode 1 - The Dawn of the Century 1900-1910
Wein, Berel / Destiny Films
Perhaps no other century in human existence experienced the terrible and remarkable contrasts of the 20th Century. The century was heroic and tragic, progressive and reactionary, forward-looking, and frighteningly regressive - a century of contradiction, confusion, and massive change. Faith & Fate focuses on how all these events and occurrences impacted on one specific group of people - a people whose survival has defied the ravages and challenges not only of this century, but of the over 40 centuries that have led up to it. Rabbi Berel Wein and a team of leading historians, including Professor Zvi Gittelman, Professor Jeffrey Gurock, and Professor Monty Penkower will take you on a remarkable journey into Jewish history. Faith & Fate powerfully and emotionally tells the story of how the events of the century impacted on the Jews - and the impact the Jews had on the century. As Rabbi Berel Wein puts it, "What makes this series so unique is that it puts the Jewish history of the 20th century into perspective. We can see ourselves in the "big picture" – how we fit into nearly 4,100 years of Jewish survival. Who we are as Jews? How, and why, we have survived so long? What is our purpose? And what is Jewish Destiny? It tells our children, and our grandchildren, that despite the tragedies, there are triumphs – and that knowing where we come from – will help us understand where we are going."
