Love Rituals: In Israel
dir. Jascha Hannover, Germany, 2019, 45min
German author and presenter Charlotte Roche travels to Israel in search of love rituals and traditions. She encounters an age old belief that there is a soul mate for every person, somewhere in the world. You just have to find them. Every year at Tu Be´av hundreds of young Jews go on pilgrimage to receive a blessing in prayer to help quickly find the Bashert - the God-destined partner, the absolute soulmate. God "gave" or made available such a Bashert for every person before birth and it is the task of a religious Jew to find it as quickly as possible. Why? Because one of the highest Jewish principles is the foundation of a family.
