Kosher Love (2017)
What happens when a rabbinical matchmaker, a newly married Hasidic couple and a single, religious hip-hop artist explore the precise meaning of True Love?
Using levity, animation and downright silliness, Kosher Love looks at the search for true love and bible-instructed marriage in the Orthodox/Hasidic Jewish world as it pushes back against an ever encroaching, wired, secular world and its idea of momentary disposable love.
Walking a tightrope of expectation and deception Kosher Love documents the hopes and revelations of several religious Jews’ search for love while simultaneously hoping to demonstrate we’re all the same in our pursuit of intimacy, support and relationships and that ultimately, our humanity binds all of us in this most universal of discoveries.
