Video of Judith Fein Speaking
Hear Judie Live on Radio
Fein and Paul Ross provide a wonderful evening of entertainment, including talk
and rare video footage they have shot and edited (with food, music and dancing
of the country also available). Their performances make entertaining and educational
stand-alone evenings, or they can be fund-raisers for your organization.
"EXCUSE ME, IS THERE A LOST TRIBE OF ISRAEL HERE?"
Hold onto your seat as you take a ride to South Africa to meet black ancient
Israelites who see the new moon in a bowl of water. Climb up a mountain to
meet remnants of the northern tribes of Israel whose practices date back
over 2500 years. Visit what is probably the oldest extant Jewish community
in the middle of a Muslim nation. Meet a whole community of Jews who came
out of hiding after 500 years and find out what it's like for them to go
public. With insight, humor and a rare gift for story telling,
international travel journalist Judith Fein whisks you around the world to
meet your unknown brothers and sisters. As a bonus, Paul Ross will show
rare video footage of these remarkable ancient Israelites.
THE SORCERESS'S APPRENTICE
Judith Fein and Paul Ross have gone around the world to find indigenous healers whose work is slowly disappearing. For six years, they have had a relationship with a curandera--a healer--in a village in central Mexico. Recently, they went to live with the healer and she trained Judith as her assistant. She taught Judith how to peform "limpias" or energetic cleansing, and how to do diagnoses using eggs and candles. Paul was allowed to film the healer and her work with clients in her private chapel. This program provides a rare look into the world of white and black magic south of the border.
Talk, film and Q &A. Promises high audience interest and involvement.
THE SCENES IN A MUSLIM COUNTRY
Ross and Judith Fein went to Tunisia, an Islamic nation in North Africa, before,
during and after the war in Iraq. What they discovered, experienced and filmed
is startlingly different from the image portrayed in the American media. Without
politics, without polemics -- BUT with humor and wi t-- they documented the people
as they are, in their own words and in their daily lives. Fein and Ross show their
one-hour film and amuse/entertain/educate with their adventures in this country.
