«A Life Apart: Hasidism in America» is a 1997 documentary. It took seven years to make this intriguing documentary about the world of the Hasidim, who exist in an insular universe (one that few outsiders ever get to see) and uncompromisingly adhere to Jewish ritual. Leonard Nimoy and Sarah Jessica Parker narrate this illuminating look at a people who speak Yiddish and dress distinctively yet cherish family, community and a life of meaning that coincides with most Americans' core principles. «A Life Apart: Hasidism in America» directed by Menachem Daum.

Gentle people09 February 2011

As far as the film goes technically, it was well-constructed with nice music, appropriate interviews and a nice gentle pacing. All this left me with an admiration, of sorts, for these gentle people.
