Movie Review: ‘Body and Soul,’ a Documentary, Looks at Jews’ Ties to the Land of Israel

THE NEW YORK TIMES
By Daniel M. Gold
HOLLYWOOD---“Body and Soul: The State of the Jewish Nation” is a concise, skillful recounting of the story of the Jewish people and their connection to the land of Israel. While it tends to conflate Judaism with Zionism — a position not all Jews agree with — the film is straightforward in presenting the historical record. Featuring contemporaneous documents and artifacts from ancient days through the Middle Ages to modern times, the film is as cogent as it is inspiring. [link]
