Friends: 

Our Israeli translator Eli Romanovsky took time out from pesach to answer my question in Update #7 about the song that was being sung at Rabbi Froman's funeral.  I found it moving and imagined that the mourners were singing deeply philosophical, kabalistic poetry of some kind.   I was quite wrong.

The song was a tribute to Froman's wife, Haddasah.  One of the Rabbi's dying wishes was that this be sung at his funeral.   The lyrics are from "Canto for the Virtuous Wife," one of the songs for Shabbat, Proverbs 31, 10-31. http://bg4.me/d4Jxk  

Less than a day left in our Kickstarter campaign.  If you have 30 seconds, send this shortened link to one person you know: http://kck.st/13jxXyF

I'd like to share with you a scene from our current reel, the story of the evacuation of Migron, one of the main developments in the West Bank over our year of shooting.   

The scens is one of the climactic moments of the film.   The camera follows Chaim Teitelbaum, a Migron resident and leader of the settlers' legal and political battle to forestall evacuation.   One of our six central characters, Hagit Ofran (who is not in this scene), led Peace Now's campaign to enforce court rulings mandating the evacuation.

Cheers.
