Why the Jews

UK Jewish Film

Cinema

Directed by John Curtin 2018 | Canada | English | 1h 10 | Certificate U

Modesty may be a virtue but the stats don’t lie: 22% of all Nobel prizes have been won by Jews, and don’t get us started on Jewish accomplishments in literature, film and art. This fascinating documentary turns to Jewish luminaries, including Howard Jacobson, Shimon Peres, Alan Dershowitz and Lord Jonathan Sacks, to find out the reasons for Jewish achievement.
