Being Kosher (2010)
1h 29min · Documentary, Family · 1 January 2010
Jews who want to live kosher not only have to learn the religious rules of every day life. They also have to face up to questions about just what constitutes proper thinking, speaking and acting. A whopping 613 commandments are laid out to regulate Jewish life. But sometimes an 'appropriate interpretation' is allowed. BEING KOSHER is a sensual film about the curious contradictions and concepts of everyday Jewish life, followed at times freely and at times stringently by liberal and orthodox Jews in Germany - familiar neighbors with an unfamiliar way of life. Over the course of a year we capture our main protagonists as they shuttle between the highs of the holidays and the necessities of everyday life. The director is on the lookout for authentic Jewish life - whether it concerns love, food or money - she is there to get the answer.
