Featuring the short film Unetanah Tokef
The story of Yom Kippur on Kibbutz Beth Hashita

What happens to a small close-knit community when 11 of its members are buried in one day? What forms of mourning and meaning are available to this community, when religion is foresworn? And when the 11 young men all died fighting for Israel in the Yom Kippur war, how should their secular kibbutz now relate to Yom Kippur?
