A warm-hearted story of Jewish singles grappling to find both their beshert (soulmate) and to retain their cultural and ethnic identity using the traditional institution of Jewish matchmaking in a contemporary setting.
This film documents the alarming rise of anti-Semitism in Europe today. It examines this wave of anti-Semitism against European Jews and their institutions, mainly from the point of view of those who have directly experienced the violence or live every day with the threat. In recent conversations with American Jews as well as non-Jews, it’s surprising by how many are un-informed about the problem. Some have heard about the violence in France, but most are totally unaware of what’s happening in the rest of Europe.
A docu-drama about Jewish immigrants settling in America’s heartland in the early 1900s, far from their traditional culture.
