In 1896, Solomon Schechter, a Cambridge University professor, came upon an extraordinary discovery inside a rundown Cairo synagogue: a vast room containing sacred ancient religious texts, manuscripts, and letters. This documentary details that amazing treasure trove, which includes handwritten documents by influential physician and philosopher Moses Maimonides, as well as correspondence and lists that reveal the ebb and flow of life in medieval Egypt during a period when Jewish, Muslim, and Christian communities coexisted.

Within the ultra-Orthodox enclaves of Brooklyn, Rachel “Ruchie” Freier, a lawyer and mother of six, is revolutionizing the role of women in daily life by training them to work as EMTs—an alternative to Hatzolah, the all-male Jewish volunteer ambulance corps. Ruchie’s belief that Orthodox women deserve female EMTs drives her to overcome her community’s objections and to bring her vision to reality.
