Kosher Beach

Dir. Karin Kainer | 62 min
Documentary Israel, USA 2019
Hebrew with English subtitles

The beautiful coastline of Tel Aviv draws devoted beachgoers eager to find peace and relaxation in the Mediterranean. Among these are residents of Bnei Brak, a closed orthodox suburb, who frequent a gender-segregated stretch of seaside, closed off to the neighboring gay beaches with a modesty fence. Kainer’s insightful and often humorous film explores the importance of this kosher beach, even defying the wishes of rabbis fearful of the beach’s “immorality”.
