We present two films from the 2023 Jewish Film Festival on Tour, starting with this sharp, hilarious critique of the business of love and marriage in the Orthodox community.

In Detail

On the face of it, young yeshiva bocher Moti and his little sister’s best friend Nehami are the perfect match - they share the same values, have known each other for years, and most importantly, they are in love.

There is just one little problem: Moti (Amit Rahav) is Ashkenazi and Nehami (Liana Ayoun), Sephardi, and in the strictly Orthodox city in which they live, such a shidduch (Jewish arranged marriage) is strictly prohibited. Going against the wishes of his meddling parents and a nosy matchmaker, Moti comes up with a genius if risky plan to marry Nehami.

Inspired by classic 1960s and 70s Bourekas comedies, Erez Tadmor’s new film is an entertaining and good-hearted romantic comedy that gives a light Orthodox twist to ‘Romeo and Juliet.’
