Jewish and Israeli Film Festival Opening Night: Matchmaking

Hosted by

This sweet forbidden romance is a joyous tale about tolerance and love. Moti Bernstein is the son every mother wants, the student every Rabbi loves to teach, the ideal Yeshiva study mate, the perfect match for every bride. In search of a wife, he will meet the best girls in the Jewish Orthodox world but will fall for the one girl he can never have, and the only one he wants: Nechama. Against everything he knows and every value he holds dear, Moti will be forced to go out on a limb in the most unexpected and unusual of ways.

The Mayerson JCC Jewish & Israeli Film Festival presents a diverse, inspiring lineup of award-winning films and engaging, educational programming that connects to Jewish and Israeli stories. To see the whole 2024 lineup click here.
