A film produced by the Israeli Film Service and the Ministry of Education and Culture, which reviews the development of the Hebrew script over thousands of years. Following the transformation from the format of symbols and signs of a simple ancient drawing, to specific letters which make up the current Hebrew alphabet, the film demonstrates the incarnation and development of the Hebrew writing using symbols, graphic design and animation. These transformations are demonstrated through archeological artifacts such as engraved marks on jugs and potsherds dated back to the 17th century BC, to the incarnation of the hebrew script in the Dead Sea Scrolls, and later in Torah scrolls of Jewish communities from around the world.
