November 2020 — Our Jewish Roots Production Update

In the face of difficult circumstances, it is easy to get discouraged or diverted from your goal. However, sometimes the only choice is to continue moving forward. (“Have I not commanded you? Be strong and courageous. Do not be afraid; do not be discouraged, for the Lord your God will be with you wherever you go.” — Joshua 1:9)

Because of scheduling limitations, the Our Jewish Roots filming crew locked in a full week of field production at Capernaum Village, located outside the Dallas-Fort Worth area. Usually the last week of October is mild in Texas, but not always. Wouldn’t you know… an arctic front decided to come through the area, bringing with it highs in the 30s, a strong north wind, and rain.

We needed two full days to complete our dramatic re-enactments inside a small structure that had no insulation, no water, no power… yeah, basically just a shack. Here is what it looks like on the outside.

But the interior appearance was a perfect setting for our Colonial-era dramas. Thanks to the artistic vision of our director, Kenneth Berg, great preparation from our actors, a talented crew, two propane heaters, and, of course, the indwelling Holy Spirit, we accomplished our task! (“With man this is impossible, but with God all things are possible.” — Matthew 19:26)

The post-production process begins now, getting everything ready for the series to debut in late winter or early spring 2021. Please watch for this enlightening series that we hope will inspire your faith. As we are thankful for the Lord’s divine deliverance, we also thank you for your financial support.

    I will like to have your newsletters.

    I hope to be able to see this through Roku. I have been having trouble seeing a menu of your shows for a few weeks. When I pull up zola levitt on Roku it takes me to your page but only shows a search engine and nothing to chose from. This is so frustrating because I can’t find recent shows. And without titles given I don’t know what you offer. Please help

  7. Katherine Miller says:

    Congratulations upon the success of your accurately depicted programs that follow the Bible. Thank you Dr. Seif for your presentations.
    I follow your weekly programs on Day Star Tv. I especially love Levitt music and as performed by the Harts. Please send the newsletter to me.
    I will continue to pray for success in all your endeavors in evangelism.
    Sincerely, Katherine

    I worked for Zola in the 80s here in Dallas. He visited 1st Baptist Church in Ft. Smith , ARKANSAS. He stayed at our home when he was there.
    We later moved to Dallas and joined Wycliffe Bible Translators. Worked in the Philippines for 2 years. Served in Dallas as a Project Manager for some of the first soft ware are
    used for helping Translators produce Scripture for those languages that had none. There are over 7400 languages in the world. “And this Gospel of the kingdom will be proclaimed throughout the whole world as a testimony to all nations, and then the end will come.” Matthew 24:14

    Had privilege of being given one of the first copies of the TLV BIBLE. A Rabin Jeff Fienberg teaches Hebrew here for those working on the Old Testament.
    Will never forget our years with Zola. Happened to find the link while reading about Netanyahu return as Prime Minister!
