In Jerusalem’s orthodox neighbourhoods it’s Succot, seven days celebrating life’s essentials in a Sukkah into which It is a Mitzvah to invite strangers. A devout couple, Moshe and Mali, married nearly five years and childless are so poor that they can’t afford to build a Succah. They pray

for a miracle. Suddenly, miracles abound: a friend finds Moshe a Sukkah which he says is abandoned, Moshe is the beneficiary of local charitable fundraising, and two escaped convicts arrive on Moshe and Mali’s doorstep in time to be their Ushpizin – their guests. The miracles then become trials. Rabbinical advice, absolution, an effort to avoid anger, and a 1000-shekel citron all figure in Moshe’s dark night of soul searching.

This Charming Israeli film, is Funny, Deeply Spiritual and Absolutely Uplifting. You won’t leave without a smile on your face.
