New DVD! Roots: The Journey Home

New DVD! Roots: The Journey Home

Ohel Chana High School Los Angeles presents Roots: The Journey Home. This gripping musical play takes us back three centuries to the times of the Baal Shem Tov when the Jews of Eastern Europe were faced with physical and spiritual hardship. Our story follows orphaned sister and brother, Devorah Leah and Boruch, as they discover the mystical world of Chassidus and find their intended life partners. Meet the heroes and simple cobblers, the princes and dreamers, the giants of spirit that spawned this revolutionary movement.

Brought to you by the creators of A Light for Greytowers, The Heart that Sings, and Operation: Candlelight, this captivating stage production will entertain, warm the heart, stir the spirit and inspire the soul.

About Kol Neshama

Founded in 2000 by Artistic Director Robin Saex Garbose, Kol Neshama is a Los Angeles-based non-profit 501(c)3 corporation dedicated to providing professional artistic training and performance opportunities for girls and women in a Torah-observant setting and to developing an emerging artistic voice through the creation of distinctly Jewish film and stage productions. Our observant Jewish community is teeming with talent yearning to be expressed, yet opportunities for serious artistic exploration are few. Through Kol Neshama’s sixteen years of summer-camp intensives and school year programs, over 400 girls from as far away as Israel, South Africa, Argentina and Germany have experienced the joy and benefit of creative expression while developing their gifts with a Torah perspective. To date, Kol Neshama has produced ten original plays, five musical DVDs, two CDs and three ground-breaking, internationally acclaimed “for women only” feature movie musicals, A Light for Greytowers, The Heart that Sings and Operation Candlelight.
