The Mountain & The Cliff: A Short Chasidic Tale on Giving

By Lauren Flans

This is a modern take on a classic short chasidic tale about giving, parenting, family and asking for help. It was collaboratively created through voting and volunteer participation at a 48-hour film jam by participants at the Jewish Funders Network (JFN) 2013 International Conference in Los Angeles.

Thank you to our animators, volunteers, producers, funders and sound engineers who taught the BimBam team that together we really can move mountains.
