abstract
The Book is the Torah, and in this film the people are the Jews of Canada, many of whom live in the smaller centres of population across the land. Filmed in the northern Ontario towns of Sudbury, Sault Ste. Marie and North Bay, The People of the Book provides insight into the ancient pattern of ceremony and belief practised in the synagogue, and also shows the efforts of Jewish communities to perpetuate their culture and traditions.
