A historical drama based on the life of Alexander Yanai, the third Chashmonai king.
His life was a series of tumultuous battles, both abroad, expanding the borders of Eretz Yisroel, and at home, where a bitter civil war was fought between the Tzedokim and the Peroshim – the Chachamim who stood up for authentic Torah Yiddishkeit, and who were persecuted for their courage and beliefs.
Brought to life by the staff of Gan Yisroel, experience this trying time in our history, it’s troubles, politics, and ultimately, it’s redemption.
