A pleasant sense of relief and satisfaction swept over director Yair Qedar on that Saturday in February. It was late in the evening and after two and a half years of intense work, his documentary, “The Fourth Window,” was complete. Amos Oz, who died at the end of 2018, served as a particularly complex protagonist for the latest installment of Qedar’s series, “The Hebrews.”
