“The Joys of Jewishing” summer camp was organized by Rabbi Hanan Sills in August 1977. It became an annual summer camp, supported by the Aquarian Minyan of Berkeley through the mid-80s.
Combining Torah study with the experiential style of the Aquarian Minyan and the joy of the House of Love and Prayer, Rabbi Hanan created this kibbutz experience in Mendocino County, California.
Participants experienced Jewish music, dance, prayer and study and enjoyed an opportunity to discover new ways to bring Judaism into their lives.
This 28-minute documentary captures the essence of this landmark event. Taped over three summers, this extraordinary selection of images, music and personal stories captures the depth and vision of a vibrant, renewed Jewish way of life.
The sincerity and vulnerability of the participants will move and inspire viewers as they discover their Jewish roots and explore ways of integrating new perspectives into their daily practice.
You are invited to witness the tapestry of their inner songs, visions and dreams.
