Animated short film, 21 minutes
The adaptation of the beloved children's book The Tattooed Torah by childhood Jewish educator Marvell Ginsburg, into an animated short film is narrated by Ed Asner. The film will allow this story of how a small Torah was taken from a synagogue in Czechoslovakia by Nazi troops to be used as an artifact for a museum the Germans intended to build, to reach a much broader audience all over the world.

Film followed by discussion and Q&A with producer Beth Kopin
