The Tattooed Torah

Presented as part of the TRIBUTE TO ED ASNER for JFI HanukkahFest 2021

Over the last three decades, the beloved children’s book by Marvell Ginsburg,"The Tattooed Torah," has been a powerful resource for Holocaust education for children all over the world. The book recounts the true story of the rescue and restoration of a small Torah from Brno, Czechoslovakia. The adaptation of "The Tattooed Torah” into an animated short film is a three-generational endeavor, initiated by Marvell’s daughter, Beth Kopin, who first had the dream to transform this book into a film, and is one of the executive producers. Beth’s son Brett, the co-screenwriter of the screenplay, is currently a rabbinical student in Los Angeles. The film is narrated by Ed Asner.
