Challah Rising in the Desert; The Jews of New Mexico A cinematic celebration of the history and people of New Mexico’s unique Jewish community. Five waves of Jewish settlement include Conversos escaping the Spanish Inquisition 400 years ago, German merchants on the Santa Fe Trail in the early 1800’s, international scientists at Los Alamos in the 1940’s and the counterculture of the 1960’s. A moving tapestry of the Jewish experience woven into New Mexico’s fascinating landscape and history.
