Synopsis:

American Birthright is a feature-length documentary that follows an Israeli-American's grapple with religion, love, and identity after her younger sister marries outside the faith. Becky journeys to carve out her identity as an Israeli immigrant in Los Angeles by consulting a handful of Rabbis, religious experts, mentors, and family around her initial question, "should I marry Jewish?".

What she finds changes her initial question to "why be Jewish?" & shifts the very course of her life. American Birthright isn't a solely Jewish story - Becky gives an authentic voice to those struggling to fit in, find their purpose and identity, and own their individuality in a world that begs assimilation.

PRAISE
American Birthright is a significant film that follows an honest and complex search for truth and religious identity.” — Judy Gruen, Aish | SOURCE


For a woman who was making her first documentary film, this effort is amazing. I had a wonderful time watching this film, self-examining my own life as it related to hers. And thinking of others in my life who live on both sides of this idea/question of interfaith marriages and, at its core, faith as you as a person see and experience it.” — John Strange, Selig Film News | SOURCE


American Birthright will make any viewer question what it means to be of any religious background and on a broader level - what it means to be human. Recommended.” — Mark Sugiyama, Eclectic Arts | SOURCE
