The Jews of Djerba 
Djerba, an island off the southeast coast of Tunisia, is home for a small and little known Jewish community.  According to their tradition, Djerban Jews see their community as a living remnant of the Babylonian Jewish community created over 2500 years ago. Filmmakers Alain Cohen and Georges Nizan explore traditions of the community and the celebrated "Ghriba," stones said to have been salvaged from the Temple. 

"A colorful portrait of a Jewish community unknown to most of us. This film offers a unique opportunity to learn about a pocket of Jewish life that has been preserved from the past."-Medium
