  • Let There Be light

  • At 32, Meni Phillip lost his religion.
    He left his career as a successful Jewish Hasidic singer, and got divorced. His family was outraged, and disowned him. Alone, Meni set out on a painful struggle to regain his legal rights as a father to his five children.
    Soon thereafter, four (!) of his ten siblings followed his path and abandoned their orthodox religious lifestyles, as the Phillip family was torn in two… Each of the brothers struggled with the painful process of detachment from religion and family. "Let there be Light" presents a rare viewpoint of an orthodox family torn apart, while telling the moving tale of a secular family's rebirth.
