Tamar Manasseh, a charismatic rabbi and community activist from the south side of Chicago, wants African Americans and Jews to become closer allies. With one foot firmly in each of these communities, she is a natural bridge to help overcome decades of fear, misunderstanding, and lack of communication. This film shows how Manasseh brings together Jews of all colors and builds bridges to establish a revitalized alliance of African Americans and Jews while creating a new style of activist Judaism that takes religion out of the synagogue and into the streets.
