Operation Mural is the incredible but true story of the smuggling of 530 Jewish Moroccan children to Israel (including our own temple member, Mimi Stein!) under the guise of a holiday trip to Switzerland. Forty-five years after their participation in the clandestine operation, three men return to Casablanca to retrace the unfolding of this humanitarian mission.  They relive their undercover activities, in which they were assisted by a dedicated local group of Jewish youth, the Misgeret. Director Yehuda Kaveh uses compelling interviews to reveal a fascinating chapter in Moroccan Jewish history and Israel’s secret efforts to bring immigrants to a new homeland.
