    This film takes us on the unusual journey of a father and his two sons who decide to make a pilgrimage from the north of Israel to Jerusalem’s Western Wall–all in the midst of the Second Intifada.

    Menachem Goldberg, a charismatic dreamer, and his two sons, aged eight and ten-years-old, begin their trip just prior to the start of the Passover holiday. Menachem’s desire to journey in the paths of their fathers becomes an expression of the current realities of the Middle East. Along the way, through Arab and Jewish settlements, Menachem is struck by the juxtaposition of modern life with ancient beliefs. As Menachem attempts to come to terms with the dissonance that exists in the occupied territories, he also comes to terms with his own inner dissonance.

    At the heart of this film is an intimate view given of this family. Menachem’s optimistic spirit, bonding with his sons, and his attempts to make peace wherever he goes, penetrates straight through our hearts. Ultimately, we are left with a great sense of hope.

    Paths of Our Fathers
