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

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.

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.

When you are so jaded by the world and the evils in it and your faith is on the rocks, watch this movie. Lior is as Heavenly Father expects all of us to be, as a child resting in pure faith that God is. No doubts no questions, just faith. It brightened my Sabbath day to watch this. It stirred my heart and my spirit. God Loves Us, all of Us. Without a doubt.

A very interesting look at a young man with Down Syndrome and his faith community. Much of the focus was on ways that different family members and friends valued Lior. I read other reviews that criticized the film for giving little attention to his day-to-day activities. This wasn't an expose about Down Syndrome or disability rights. It was a very nice movie about valuing a fellow human being.

I personally enjoyed this documentary from start to finish. It is an honest glimpse at a Jewish family's love for one of their children whom has special needs. Loved getting to know this family and learning about the Jewish customs they celebrate.

This is a wonderful, heartwarming movie of faith and overcoming disabilities. Lior is a 12 year old boy with Downs Syndrome preparing for his Bar Mitzvah. It is fun to watch and very moving. Have the Kleenex handy.

This is a priceless gem of a movie. Lior is someone we should all be blessed to know. He is an inspiration and a leader despite (or perhaps because of) having Downs syndrome. This is a documentary of his life. He is Jewish and is completely absorbed in his relationship with God. I am a Christian and I am recommending this to all my Christian friends because if you love God, this is the movie for you. Prepare to be moved by this deeply touching story of a boy who honors his mother's legacy by honoring God. One of the best I've seen in years!!!
