Download PDF for this date

“In the Hills of Judea,” the first, talking picture of Jewish home life in Palestine, with the Habima actors in the leading roles, will be exhibited in this city within the next few weeks.

The film depicts expatriates coming to Palestine, where they find the other Jews contentedly enjoying the fruits of their labors. The newcomers are astounded at this fulfillment of the Jewish national dream. The picture has both English and Hebrew dialogue.
