Parshah HaShavua in Outer Space


“An Article of Hope” is an award-winning documentary about the tiny Torah Scroll that Colonel Ilan Ramon, Israel’s first astronaut, carried into space.   The Torah’s journey starts in the concentration camp at Bergen-Belsen, and eventually reaches the day it was celebrated aboard the space shuttle Columbia. 

This true story interweaves the peaks of scientific achievement, the depths of Nazi cruelty, the private grief of a boy who came of age during the Holocaust, and the public mourning of many nations in the aftermath of the Columbia shuttle disaster.  Combining historical and ethical inquiry, the film reaches across faiths and nationalities to tell a truly human story.

The above video is only a trailer.  The film’s producers are trying to raise enough money to get PBS to show it in America.
