The Mountain & The Cliff: A Short Hasidic Tale on Giving

Recommended for all ages

This is a modern take on a classic short hasidic tale about giving, parenting, family and asking for help. This short, titled the Mountain and The Cliff was collaboratively created through voting and volunteer participation in 48-hours. The creators of this short Hasidic tale were the participants at the Jewish Funders Network (JFN) 2013 International Conference in Los Angeles, California.
