Behind the Scenes

The fascinating encounter of Torah and cinema in the search for spirituality

Lights. Camera. Action!

Based on the Chafetz Chaim’s sefer Shem Olam, this groundbreaking work uses the process of a major film production to illustrate how the physical universe is a grand mashal, an analogy, to understand the Olam HaEmes, the True World. A script, special effects, actors, editing, and a soundtrack are all parts of this virtual reality that is our world — a film running for six thousand years.

In Behind the Scenes, readers’ eyes are opened to the plan of Creation and every individual’s unique role in it, as seen through the lens of Chazal.

Behind the magnificent illusion of our world, a glimpse of the perfection of the Director can be perceived. Enjoy the Show.

“I am certain that many people will gain a new understanding of life and the purpose of living. Your book will give the reader a fresh grasp of what life is about and their connection to Hashem Yisbarach.”

Harav Shmuel Kamenetsky, shlita
