Re-Emerging: The Jews of Nigeria

Available on Prime Video
Like many in Nigeria, Shmuel consistently heard that the Igbo people were once Jews. When an Internet café opens in his town, he begins to research this further and starts a journey that eventually leads him to a community of thousands of Jews. Yet, despite the Igbo Jews' passionate commitment to Judaism with few resources, they are often met with outside scorn, family rejection and violence.
