A new film explaining the techeiles controversy…
It’s not often that a film like this is released. The product of years of research, extensive travels, dozens of interviews and discussions with leading rabbanim and even underwater filming off the coast of the Mediterranean in the Greek isles, It’s Not All Black and White is sure to amaze, and educate you.
This is a film for everyone who cares about mitzvos and wants to understand the history of this important mitzvah better. When was the last time techeiles was worn? How did it get lost? Was it found? What do the gedolim hold about this? Is it possible to find the techeiles before Mashiach comes? And, especially if you’re getting geared up to learn the sugya in Daf Yomi (The daf started learning Perek HaTecheiles Friday September 14) you want to watch this film right away.
The film features noted experts in Techeiles research and gedolei rabbanim including
Rav Dovid Cohen, Rav Aharon Feldman, Rav Shlomo Gissinger, Rav Benzion Halberstam, Rav Moshe Heineman, Rav Shmuel Kamenetsky, Rav Nissan Kaplan, Rav Moshe Tuvia Lieff, Rav Yisroel Neuman, and more.
Is Techeiles Controversial?
The fact that Techeiles is a mitzvas asei in the Torah, just like Shabbos, Kashrus, Tefillin, Mezuzah, Shofar, Lulav and Sukkah is not a question. Everyone agrees that it is a mitzvah, and if we have techeiles one must wear it on his tzitzis. The question is whether or not the techeiles available is the genuine techeiles. Techeiles is not controversial at all, the controversy is purely halachic and technical in nature regarding the validity of Murex Techeiles.
This is a sugya in Halacha like any other that requires extensive scientific and biological knowledge on top of Torah scholarship. Now, for the first time ever, this topic is presented in a clear, exciting and informative documentary film that everyone can not only learn from, but enjoy.
