Product Description

Rivka is a beautiful and precocious 12-year-old Messianic Jewish girl whose life is shattered when her father, her last remaining parent, dies. Forced to live with her aunt and uncle, a traditional Jewish couple who have broken their relationship with her father because he viewed Jesus as his Messiah, Rivka begins to prepare for her bat mitzvah in the uncomfortable and at times unwelcoming atmosphere of their synagogue. Along the way, Rivka learns life lessons that stir her faith to new levels of maturity and depth. A never-before-told story about how a strong young woman overcomes grief and finds her calling, The Sound of the Spirit is an inspiring story you won't soon forget.

Review

This extraordinary film breaks down the stereotypes that color our concept of Judaism and its many branches. We Gentiles often forget that with the possible exception of Luke, all the writers of the New Testament were Jews for Jesus! When a Jew receives Yeshua as his Lord and Savior, he doesn't have to convert to a new religion called Christianity, but he only has to receive his true Messiah, who also was a Jew who came to His people first. Voila! You have Messianic Judaism - right out of the Book of Acts. "The Sound of the Spirit" is an unusual, provocative film. It will open your eyes, your hearts, and your tear ducts. --Robert M., Tennessee

This movie has excellent acting and directing.

In the past, Jews who came to believe in Christ simply became Christians, giving up their Jewish identity.
George Moniker
I have never and I mean that I have never had this kind of a reaction to a movie in my entire life.

Messianic Judaism is a young movement of Jews living as Jews, but have accepted Christ as their savior. They are not generally accepted by traditional reform, conservative and orthodox Jews.

The Sound of the Spirit is about a Jewish teenager brought up in a Messianic Jewish family. Her mother is already deceased, but her father dies of a heart attack. She then moves in with her aunt and uncle, a traditional Jewish family. Here's where the tension and conflict begin.

This is the first film that I know of that deals with the controversy between the Jewish believers in Christ and the traditionally Jewish non-believers. This is something new as Messianic Judaism is only about 40 years old and growing. In the past, Jews who came to believe in Christ simply became Christians, giving up their Jewish identity. Messianic Jews retain their Jewish identity, live and worship as Jews and have introduced the new testament to traditional Jewish worship.

This film is well acted and produced. If the subject interests you, I highly recommend this film.

I watched the Premiere at the theater in Mayfield Hts, Cleveland this afternoon. I was pleasantly pleased with the outcome. Regardless of what denomination of Christianity or Judaism you follow, this movie will touch you and inspire you to listen to God's Spirit. The storyline is believable and well balanced between the two religions with respect and love towards both; a refreshing concept. Thank you, Michael Robert Wolf, for answering our questions after your wonderful movie. It was an honor to meet you and your lovely wife. Shalom!

While viewing the Sound of the Spirit, I sought chiefly to discern the heart of the writer. I typically do this when watching a movie, that I might walk away from such with something to ponder--in my heart. I believe most of us by default think too much--thus ignoring our hearts. We are the product of the Westernized rationale.

Central to the movie is that of the relatively new phenomenon (within contemporary church history anyway) of an ancient theological debate over whether Jesus is in fact the Messiah--represented herein as the tension between Messianic-Jews and non-Messianic Jews. And to dispel this tension we find 12 year old "Rivka" emerging as the humble voice serving to bridge the divide with "the greatest of these" - love.

Having met with several well known non-Messianic rabbis in Israel on two separate occasions, as well as having met several Messianic rabbis, I have come to conclude that theological and revelatory jewels can be found with both. The riches to be found within historical Judaism are priceless. Equally so, the experience and "new birth" to be found within Messianic Judaism is priceless. It is when both jewels are combined that we meet with the treasure chest awaiting us all--"the Full Monte."

Sound of the Spirit delicately probes this clash of belief systems. And as the theological tension continues through the movie, we find it ultimately dissipating through the expression of love. For it is during young Rivka's Bat Mitzvah that Rivka, who is a Messianic Jew, and who has yet agreed that her Bat Mitzvah would be held at her uncle's Reform Jewish synagogue; that she concludes her speech by quoting 1 Corinthians 13, "...the greatest of these is love.

The Sound of the Spirit is a good, realistic movie depicting the difficulties that Messianic Jewish believers encounter with their families and the Jewish community. This movie is a good one for both Gentile and Jewish believers to see. For Gentiles, it gives them a better understanding of what Jewish people encounter when they come to faith in Yeshua (Jesus) the promised Jewish Messiah. For Jewish believers it's an encouragement.

This was the first movie I have ever seen with this confrontational story line. The part that grieved me was the embarrassment I felt by watching a movie that was sub par in script writing and especially the quality of the acting. The story line kept me watching it, but to be honest it was painful, due to the script and acting. This debate is crucial for Christians around the world to watch. Jesus was a Jew, and just as much as it is hard for Jews to accept Christianity, my heart breaks that many churches turn their nose up at the Jews. I LOVE ISRAEL - my heart will always be connected with its land and people. This movie stirred me in a whole new way to want to see peace between Jews and Gentiles, for that reason I would say watch it. I only wish the movie held to the complete showing of love and peace between both sides. A NOTE TO THE WRITERS, EDITORS AND DIRECTORS: Please if you ever do a movie like this again, take more time to reach out to the Christian Arts. There are thousands who are professions in their areas. You need to raise the standard of the entertainment coming out of the Christian community, because there are so many who are gifted.

This is the first Messianic movie I've ever seen or heard of so for that reason alone I want to support it. The story line was good, though the ending was not very likely in reality. The more "real" part was Rivka being told she would not be allowed to go along with the other kids to Israel, and the shul bringing in an anti-missionary speaker, and her friend no longer wanting anything to do with her. I thought the girl, Anna Lasbury, did a good job in her role but the rest of the acting was lacking, unfortunately. None-the-less, the movie's ending was touching and overall I enjoyed the movie.
