CSP 4-Part Series - Jewish Readings of Modern Movies and TV
1 of 4: Star Wars – Myth, Chareidim, God and the Force
With Rabbi Dr. Raphael Zarum, live from the U.K.
Dedicated in honor of Rabbi Charlie Savenor
The Star Wars film series is a global phenomenon that has captured the imagination of millions, young and old, the world over (including me). But what have a space smuggler, a walking carpet, a little green guru, a princess with stylized hair and a wide-eyed hero got to do with Judaism? George Lucas, the creator of the series, is certainly not Jewish, but like many filmmakers he draws inspiration from the classics of faith and fiction. We will uncover the deeper resonances between Star Wars and the Torah.
