Review by Sarah Mebasser

Awakening is a short documentary created by Jews for Jesus in conjunction with the award-winning director-producer team of Herb and Amy Kossover. Narrated by actor Stephen Baldwin, it tells the story of the most recent New York Summer Witnessing Campaign. This month-long evangelistic effort takes place every July in Manhattan and is primarily a time of spreading the gospel through the distribution of broadsides (brief, attention-grabbing tracts) and by striking up conversations with people in public places.

Review by Sarah Mebasser

Eliezer Shkolnik (played by Shlomo Bar Aba) is a Talmudic Studies scholar at The Hebrew University of Jerusalem. He spends his life buried among piles of books, academic papers, and ancient documents. He is most comfortable when left alone to his research, comparing tiny details in antique texts.
