Kol Nidre
(1939, 88 min., restored print, Yiddish with English subtitles)

Directed by Joseph Seiden

This once-lost Yiddish melodrama about the fear of assimilation tells the story of a young woman and her two suitors—a smooth talking charlatan and a handsome young rabbi who rescues her from the brink of disaster. Kol Nidre is an inventive blend of themes, combining family drama and romance with popular songs and cantorial music.
