The Golden Pomegranate - A Yemenite Historical Novel
The book "The Pomegranate Pendant" by Dvora Waysman has been made into an Israeli movie starring Timna Brauer, Galit Giat, Hadar Ozeri, Ophir Nahari, Mati Seri, Aviv Alush, Matti Atlas, Michael Moshanov and Achinoam (NOA) Nini.
Mazal, a Jewish child-bride from Yemen, preserves her religion, culture, family and her unique art, surviving the harsh, violent conditions of Jerusalem and the Holy Land in the late 19th through the mid-20th centuries. She becomes the mother of two, a young widow, and the family's breadwinner through her skills as a jeweler in gold and silver. This stirring saga spans four generations of a family of Yemenite goldsmiths at the vortex of history in the Land of Israel. For the first time in a feature motion picture, the fabulous story of Israel's rebirth is graphically portrayed through the extraordinary saga of a Yemenite family's struggles to survive and thrive in Jerusalem from the late 19th Century through the Israeli War of Independence.
