“A wonderful, thought-provoking series that explores difficult questions in a totally accessible manner. [WHO KNOWS ONE] offers a chance to hear a wide array of scholars and teachers who express many different perspectives. Deeply engaging.”

Deborah Dash Moore, Ph.D., Director, Frankel Center for Judaic Studies and Frederick G.L. Huetwell Professor of History, University of Michigan

“… a brilliant use of the personal interview technique. There was an immediacy and obvious sincerity, even passion in the content of the remarks by different individuals. And the content itself was of high quality – a real insight into 21st century Jewish thought.”

Seymour Epstein, Ed.D., Former Senior VP, UJA Federation of Greater Toronto and Director of Mercaz: The Centre for Enhancement of Jewish Education

“A tour de force body of work from young director, Sarah Y. Goldfein, who spent several years searching for the meaning of G-d. The amazing roster of renowned philosophers, Rabbis and thinkers listed on the jacket of the DVD collection, speaks for itself.

I could easily see this material used to teach a serious adult education, year-long course to learners of varying background. The interviews and questions raised are thought provoking and the companion study guide is great for stimulating and generating discussions. The beauty of this collection is that it can be viewed in segments, allowing for the instructor and students to dissect and reexamine every nuance and thought. I am looking forward to incorporating WHO KNOWS ONE at our synagogue’s education program.”

Yaffa Fuchs, MA, CJE, Educational Director, Congregation Beth El, Voorhees, NJ

“[WHO KNOWS ONE] is a most impressive undertaking. It brings together some of the top Jewish thinkers representing the wide diversity of belief and understanding in the Jewish community to deal with essential, theological and moral issues that continue to provoke energetic debate. Viewers will hear compelling, oft times, contrasting arguments, challenging them to approach these questions in ways perhaps they never have done so before.

The entire series, or parts of it, can serve as an outstanding video syllabus for adult education, college and high school courses, ranging from several sessions to a semester to a multi-year exploration.”

Steven Kraus, Executive Director, Alliance for Continuing Rabbinic Education (ACRE)

“I have used WHO KNOWS ONE dvds to open my classes up to the variety and power of modern Jewish thinking and all my students have the same response – AMAZING! IT WAS LIKE HAVING GREAT PHILOSOPHERS IN MY LIVING ROOM!”

Rabbi David Levin-Kruss, Faculty Member and Director of Special Programs. Pardes Institute of Jewish Studies

“A remarkable contribution to the discussion of Jewish Theology, and a highly useful and engaging educational tool…”
