4.0 from 0 reviews

On the island of Djerba, just off the southeast coast of Tunisia, is a little known Jewish community. The Jews there see themselves as a living remnant of Babylon. According to their tradition, this community was created after the destruction of Solomon's Temple, over 2500 years ago. Filmmakers Alain Cohen and Georges Nizan explore traditions of the community and their celebrated "Ghirba" stones, said to have been salvaged from the temple.
