What does the wedding ceremony of two religious Jewish gay men look like? Or a family of two mothers and 4 children? Or the pregnancy of a trans religious man? These are some of the questions raised in the series. It tells the stories of LGBTQ people who chose to remain religious Jews and to build their lives, relationships, families, and everyday activities according to the Jewish religion.

  • "Nakar’s celebratory documentary is an important study in tolerance for everyone, including queer people, who are not immune to narrow-minded thinking. The breadth of participants in the series is impressive, and a reminder of how diverse the rainbow family is. What unites the cast is a relaxed open-mindedness as well as a focus on independent interpretation of religion and queerness. There is no one-size-fits-all in life, and it’s good to be reminded of that."
