About The Film
KISS ME KOSHER is an endearing dual love story and romantic misadventure about so-called un-kosher love between clashing cultures, generations, and families. Berta, a sprightly Jewish grandmother, and her equally vivacious granddaughter, Shira, argue passionately about love and what women can and cannot do. When one falls for a German woman and the other a Palestinian man, it gets complicated. Their families collide over shared, fraught historical pasts, and their romances must bridge that wide chasm to have a fighting chance for a future together. What happens with lovers who don't fit—but belong together?
With a loving eye for characters grappling with societal and religious conventions, Israeli director-writer Shirel Peleg crafts a wonderful story that goes beyond clichés to unmask them, saying, "I wanted to see if it would be possible for a young couple to build a future without ignoring the past."
