A strange and mystical parable about the disconnect between Jewish and Christian belief, The Gospel According to Chaim introduces us to Chaim Einspruch (1892-1977), a Yiddish writer who found Jesus and translated the New Testament into Yiddish. A Jewish immigrant from an observant Polish Jewish family, Einspruch set out to publish his book in Baltimore in the early years of WWII, only to be turned down by every Yiddish printer he approached. Undeterred, he learned the art of printing so that he could print an elegantly illustrated manuscript on his own. Presented by New Yiddish Rep.
