Re-Emerging: The Jews of Nigeria

Filmmaker Jeff Lieberman takes us on an unforgettable journey to Nigeria where the Igbo people, in researching their roots and history, find convincing cultural connections with Judaism. We are introduced to leaders of the community who maintain their Jewish beliefs and traditions with few resources. In a tormented country, where religious conflicts are a reality, the Igbo people are committed to perpetuating their legacy.
