Israel’s Biggest Box Office Hit of 2022

In this romantic comedy by Erez Tadmor (Magic Men and A Matter of Size), Moti Bernstein is the son every mother wants and the student every Rabbi loves to teach. And he is not bad looking either…. In search of a wife, he meets the best girls in the Jewish Orthodox world. However, he only falls for the one girl he can never have, his sister’s friend Nechama, who hails from a Moroccan Mizrahi family—a taboo for his established Ashkenzi community. Moti will be forced to go out on a limb in the most unexpected and unusual of ways.

Reviews “A Haredi take on Romeo and Juliet with plenty of laughs.”
— Jewish International Film Festival, Australia
“Inspired by classic Bourekas comedies, Erez Tadmor’s (A Matter of Size) new film is a sharp, hilarious critique of the business of love and marriage in the Haredi community.”
