The Valderama Sisters
Who is a Jew? Lucy, Rosa, and Flor, the strong, independent Valderama sisters are part of Peru’s Bnei Moshe community– former Catholics seeking a path to Judaism. They want to convert and immigrate to Israel. They believe that this is their destiny. In February 2005, a rabbinical conversion court is sent by Israel to clarify and convert those who qualify. The film accompanies the sisters during the conversion process, the departure from Peru, and their arrival Israel – where they face the reality and culture shock of their new home.
