Description: Made in 1913, this Russian documentary was assumed lost until 1997, when it was found stored away in France's National Film Archives.

The Life of the Jews in Palestine originally premiered in 1913 at the 11th Zionist Congress in Vienna and then went on to be enjoy popularity throughout Europe and Russia; it was screened for more contemporary audiences at the 2000 San Francisco Jewish Film Festival.~ Rebecca Flint Marx, All Movie Guide
