This short documentary introduces us to 10-year-old Yehuda, a radiant example of the Hasidic belief in the joy of prayer. Living with his parents and 10 brothers and sisters in West Jerusalem, Yehuda brings old customs and traditions to life as he prepares to celebrate the Sukkot festival.

This short documentary is part of the Children of Jerusalem series, which presents engaging portraits of Palestinian and Israeli children living in the historic, much-contested city.

    Children of Jerusalem - Yehuda J'ai aimé suivre le jeune Yehuda dans son cheminement de jeune Juif heureux à l'école, à la maison et au parc accompagné par sa mère pour surveiller le plus jeune de ses 10 frères et soeurs. Il fait les courses au marché, ramène le tout à maison en étant visiblement très heureux. Il prie avec ferveur et il est un garçon qui aime la vie en racontant à son frère les grands yeux bleus du garçon sur une photo des ses ancêtres provenant de Russie. Un film rafraichissant.
