Mercaz High School

It's Just Part of Us

The students in the Mercaz Filmmaking course explore their own Jewish identity through documentary filmmaking. By turning the camera on themselves and their peers, they attempt to find ways to describe their contemporary experience of being a Jewish teenager. Through interviewing adults, based on their own questions, the students discover the contrasts to their own perspectives that may offer avenues for future reflection and growth.
