dir. Ronit Kertsner / Israel / 2011 / Documentary / 52 min.

12 years after he was ordained as a Polish Catholic priest, Romuald Waszkinel, discovers that he was born to Jewish parents, and that his name was Jacob Weksler. The film follows his amazing journey: from conducting mass in a church in Poland to life as an observant Jew in a religious kibbutz in Israel. Romuald is torn between two identities, between being Romuald Waszkinel and Jacob Weksler. He is unable to renounce either, and therefore is rejected by both religions and the state of Israel. He is required to choose. Screenings organized in partnership with UK Jewish Film.
