Ohel Chana High School of Los Angeles is presenting a new DVD release for women and girls titled “Roots: The Journey Home.”
Based on the Memoirs of the Frierdiker Rebbe, this gripping musical play takes us back 3 centuries to the times of the Baal Shem Tov when the Jews of Eastern Europe were faced with physical and spiritual hardship.
Directed by Robin Garbose, the show brings the viewer into the magical world of mystics and scholars, allowing them to experience the fascinating history of the genesis of the Chasidic movement.
The story follows orphaned sister and brother, Devorah Leah and Boruch, from whom the Lubavitch dynasty descends, 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,” the movie jacket says.
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.
