About The Film

In October 2015, director Becky Tahel, a Jewish millennial working in Hollywood, found herself grappling with her sister's recent engagement to a non-Jew. Despite her belief in the modern ideal of love and following your heart, she felt judgmental and confused by their intermarriage, and discovered that many of her friends and colleagues shared her difficulty synthesizing family loyalty with her cultural values. AMERICAN BIRTHRIGHT grew out of Tahel's conversational journey with family, friends, and faith leaders about love, faith, marriage, religion, and inclusiveness, and sprouts into a full-blown dialogue of self-discovery. Returning to Israel, where she was born, Tahel must first ask herself big questions about love, longing, and Jewish learning to understand the pain of making tough choices and find joy in appreciating our differences.
