Film: Joy of the Soul

On 8 Nisan, 5769, an Arab terrorist with an axe killed Shlomo Nativ, a 13-year old boy in a small Jewish community in Gush Etzion. This film, made by filmmaker Yosef Muskal and the Nativ family, highlights one of the most unique and mysterious capacities of the Jewish Soul – the capacity to turn the most awful tragedies into powerful wellsprings of vitality and joy. It makes no sense that something painful could be transformed into light. It defies understanding. But sometimes inner awareness of Divine unity that transcends life and death in the ordinary sense becomes manifest for all to see. This movie documents one of those occasions.

· The boy was unusually spiritually gifted, a pure lamb born in the ancient Jewish hills

· The father is a sage – An outstanding Chabad Chassid, one of Rav Yitzchok Ginzburg’s long-time students, a renowned psychologist, and the dean of a professional school of psychology that integrates Kabbalah and psychology.

· The Community of Bat Ayin, though small in size, is well-known for its unique spiritual intensity, and we experience this event through its eyes.

    Yishai, I have never been as moved and inspired by a film. Your film project touched my soul so deeply.
    Yosef and I thank you from the bottom of our hearts. We are speechless. Moshiach Now.

  2. Ruthann Adelsberg says:

    I have seen this Yael. It is very powerful. I hope you and your beloved are well.

  3. WeJew Videos says:

    what joy came from this? there is nothing being transformed here – just Jews wanting to smile where viscious revenge is warranted – it is because of Jewish cowardice that Israelis have for decades elected leaders that financed, emboldened, legitimized, and allowed arab savages to run free throughout our Land – where now the Jew is afraid – the ONLY light from this would be the complete destruction of the arab enemy in Israel – and a public hanging of the murderer himself – what Jews call light is self-serving and lacking nobility – 1000 torah scrolls do not even put a dent in the damage done in the loss of a Jewish life – lost to Israeli cowardly leaders and oslonian national suicide…
