Synopsis by Rose of Sharon Winter

This video takes the viewer to visit the Bar Kochba caves, mysterious limestone formations in the southern region of Israel. It was here that the Jews took refuge from the Romans, who persecuted them. In the year 132 C.E., the Jews planned and began their revolt against the repressive regime. On-site photography, reenactments, and scholarly commentary tell the story.
