Talmud Tale The Emperor’s Secret

Recommended for older teens and adults

, , and

Emperor Antoninus has a secret. He may be the merciless leader of the Roman Empire, but his humanity takes him underground (literally) by breaking the rules of a society he was born to uphold. Using cardboard and clay, this stop-motion animation video short tells a story from the Talmud of an unlikely friendship between this legendary ruthless emperor and a wise Rabbi.

Overtime their friendship develops into a brotherhood bond that carries Emperor Antonius and Rabbi Judah the Prince from young inexperienced leaders into elderly best friends.


This film was produced in collaboration with six teams of young writers, animators and programmers and was made possible in part by funds granted by The Covenant Foundation. The statements made and the views expressed, however, are solely the responsibility of the filmmakers.
