We are going to discuss the Israeli film Sallah Shabati. This early work of Israeli satire features Chaim Topol and
tells the story of Sallah and his family who immigrate from Yemen to Israel just a year after Israel is founded. The film
won a Golden Globe award and was nominated for an Academy Award for Best Foreign Film – putting Israeli films on the
international film stage for the first time. Enjoy…and get ready to laugh and discuss.
Sallah Shabati is available to view on Vimeo online (no download required) for a $3.99 rental fee. You can find it by
