Challah In the Desert

challah in the dssert1Challah Rising in the Desert: The Jews of New Mexico, a film conceived and produced by Paula Amar Schwartz, previewed a 30 minute promotional extract on Sunday afternoon, May 15, 2016 to a full house during the spring meeting of the New Mexico Jewish Historical Society at the Jewish Community Center of Greater Albuquerque.

Director/filmmaker Isaac Artenstein, who shot the footage just a few short months ago, came from California to help present this first edit of what they hope will become a 90 minute documentary on Jewish life in New Mexico.
