“Riveting… sometimes humorous, sometimes poignant.”  Charlotte Observer

Jews have been integral to North Carolina’s emergence as a progressive New South society. This richly textured documentary consists of oral histories, interviews with noted historians, rarely seen photographs and engaging re-enactments – that bring to life over 300 years of Jewish North Carolina history.
