The Great Eagle
Genre: Documentary | Country of Origin: Israel | Runtime: 3 Episodes, 45 minutes
A journey through the life, philosophy, and mystery surrounding Rabbi Moshe Ben Maimon — or as he is known in English — Maimonides. Born in 12th century Cordoba, Spain, Maimonides is responsible for some of the text and interpretations of Jewish law that define the community's way of life to this day. And still, much of his life has remained a mystery. Until now.
Originally broadcasted on Israel's Kan11 public broadcasting channel, the series is the second title from prolific filmmaker Uri Rosenwacks to make it to ChaiFlicks. The first, Kingdoms, dissects and uncovers the many layers of Hassidic life in Israel and across the globe.

Significant Other 2
Genre: Drama, Comedy, Noir | Country of Origin: Israel | Runtime: 6 Episodes, 45 minutes
A sophisticated rom-com set in Tel Aviv, Significant Other follows two lonely neighbors in their late 40’s – a single woman (Dana Modan) and a newly divorced man (Assi Cohen) - who find themselves living next door to each other and hesitantly embark on an obstacle-filled relationship which reflects how precarious life can be.
While season 1 was full of missed chances and half-way-there encounters, season 2 will see our two former neighbors unite to take on life as a new, 40-something year old couple.
With Modan and Cohen — two of Israel's leading TV personalities — at the helm, the acclaimed series has garnered multiple awards and introduced audiences to an intimate, reluctant, and somewhat dark love story.
