Rashbi’s Secret

Rashbi’s Secret

We’ve all heard about the national catastrophe that took place in 2021 at the tomb of Rabbi Shimon Bar-Yohai in Meiron; but many of us are not familiar with the site and do not understand the essence of the faith that causes hundreds of thousands of people to visit the tomb every year. Rashbi’s Secret presents a poetic and intimate reflection of this special place via a collection of authentic moments and personal accounts of a number of women. What is that power of faith associated with the Rashbi? And what happens when that faith is put to the test?

Director: Shirly Chechik

Producer: Avigail Sperber

Supporter(s): The New Fund for Cinema And Television
