The Moon Is Jewish, a stunning documentary about a Polish soccer hooligan who converts to Orthodox Judaism, will rattle and move you. Raised Catholic, Pawel used to get his kicks beating up minorities, but now relishes quiet, contemplative Shabbats with his family. Y-Love is a poignant portrait of a struggling Black, gay, Orthodox Jewish hip-hop artist who seems most at ease spouting rhymes on a Jerusalem stage, surrounded by adoring, religious fans.

Description

Y-Love is the “premier Orthodox Jewish entity in hip hop.” Raised in inner-city Baltimore, Yitz Jordan became fascinated with Judaism as a child, attended Yeshiva in his teens and endured a short-lived arranged marriage to a Yiddishspeaking woman who didn’t think he was religious enough. Music is the medium through which Y-Love connects to his faith; he seems most at ease spouting rhymes on a Jerusalem stage, surrounded by adoring, religious fans. This documentary paints a poignant portrait of a perennial outsider: a Black, Jewish, gay orphan searching for a home.
