The Film

THE COMMANDMENT KEEPERS is a one-hour documentary on the Commandment Keepers Ethiopian Hebrew congregation, a highly observant African American synagogue founded in 1919 in Harlem, where it still carries on today, more than four generations later. The film is the dramatic story of a community caught between two worlds, Black and Jewish, a minority's minority, struggling to hold on to its faith and identity despite the obstacle's. A portrait and history of the community, which now encompasses a rabbinic institute and sister synagogues nationally, THE COMMANDMENT KEEPERS challenges stereotypes and the myth of monolithic race and religion.
