Footage from Munkacs

While reviewing for tomorrow’s class, I stumbled across some footage that was taken of the Munkacs Jewish community in the 1930s–including footage of the wedding of the daughter of the Munkascer Rebbe (who is the subject of our reading for tomorrow). About 1:15 in you can actually see the Munkascer Rebbe himself, talking in Yiddish about the Sabbath.

 

In the following footage, you can see Jewish children at the Hebrew Gymnasium in Munkacs singing the Zionist anthem, “Hatikvah.” You can bet the Rebbe wasn’t happy about it.
