Leap of Faith at BJFF November 8

Mayyim Hayyim is a community partner of the Boston Jewish Film Festival

Four American families struggle with a life-altering decision to abandon their childhood Christian faith for conversion to Orthodox Judaism. A young woman from Trinidad; a family who leaves their dream home in the remote mountains of Colorado; a career Army woman and single mother; and an elderly couple. Each finally finds the faith for which they've long searched. Filmed over a three-year period, Leap of Faith is the rare documentary to chronicle not only the deeply emotional process of religious conversion, but also its effects on children and extended families.
