Product Description

{New York Times Critic's Pick}

{5 Audience Awards-- Boston Jewish Film Festival, Washington Jewish Film Festival, San Diego Jewish Film Festival, Vancouver Jewish Film Festival}

{WINNER! 2008 Media Award AAIDD--American Association on Intellectual and Developmental Disabilities}

{WINNER! 2008 Media Award National Down Syndrome Congress}

Winner of multiple awards and acclaimed by audiences around the world, Praying with Lior asks whether someone with Down syndrome can be a "spiritual genius." Many believe Lior is close to God-- at least that's what his family and community believe-- though he's also a burden, a best friend, an inspiration and an embarrassment, depending on who is asked and when. As this moving and entertaining documentary moves to its climax, Lior must pass through the gateway to manhood-- his Bar Mitzvah.

Review

An intriguing, profound and deceptively simple portrait of how a young man's faith illuminates his family and community. --Philadelphia Inquirer

There have been a number of very popular documentaries about religion in recent years, but 'Praying with Lior' stands out as one of the most heartfelt and touching. --ABC News

If you can watch 'Praying With Lior'
without shedding a tear, it's time
for an emotional checkup. --Box Office Magazine

I wanted to see this movie because I have a child with Down Syndrome and I am Jewish. In the end it was a story of a family and of love. I strongly recommend it for all.

What a wonderful opportunity to take a peak into the life of a special boy with a big heart. I found this documentary to be educational, enlightening and inspiring. I highly recommend it and think it has something to offer everyone.

As the mother of a young son with Down syndrome, I was excited to watch this documentary. Lior is such an amazing young man...so devout in his religion and such an inspiration to the people around him. Lior shows beautifully the depth of his understanding of God and people. He is a typical boy in so many ways...with a bit of a stubborn streak just like my son...yet he is also extraordinary in his religious fervor. It was great to see how the people around him were affected and how some of their fears and preconceptions were changed. You don't have to be Jewish (I, myself, am Christian) or have a child with Down syndrome to appreciate this movie. I highly recommend it.

This film came up on Netflix as a recommendation. Immediately after I watched it I jumped on Amazon and bought two copies, and I have not stopped talking about it with my family. Lior and his family are amazing, and being able to peek into their lives during the period leading up to Lior's bar mitzvah is a gift. I am inspired with the loving way they treat each other, and the love and acceptance that is offered to Lior from the community.

Lior's mother, a rabbi, had everything to do with his success, even though the film doesn't touch much on this. She apparently spent much time with him in early childhood and gave him praise, feedback, inspiration, encouragement, love, understanding, and even wisdom. After her death, Lior continued to gain approval and inner rewards by 'davening' and becoming the "Little Rebbe"..a true son of his mother. This is not to say that Lior doesn't have a true spirituality, which is shown in his optimistic and loving nature.
I learned a lot about Down Syndrome from this film in addition to becoming, very briefly, a (viewing) member of a strong, close-knit family, both normal and abnormal at the same time. Very interesting and nicely done by the documentarian.

I viewed "Praying with Lior" recently and found it to be very uplifting. The title character, his family, and the community all show how a young man with Down's Syndrome can be a spiritual leader to those who know him. The film is now funny, now touching, now powerful. I recommend it highly.

This video was fabulous. It spoke to the heart and really made you feel what Lior felt. I would highly recommend this video to anyone working with children with special needs or contemplating working with the special needs population.

Absolutely outstanding. The journey of faith for all of us and presented through the life of Lior. I will admit that I have viewed the movie 6 times and each time I am moved by the Faith that Lior lives each day of his life. I also have had the wonderful blessing of meeting Lior, spending time with Lior and witnessing his faith in all his daily activity. Lior has truly beeb blessed by God and sent to minister to all of us. His story is compelling and so richly rewarding. The movie was well done, expertly produced and a must see for the Judeo-Christian Communities.
