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.
