Storyline

This is the story of a journey made by a young religious family: Yael, Yoni, and their three-year-old son Yiftach. Yoni, once a barely observant Jew, is now devoted to the passionately Hassidic Breslov tradition. His wife Yael has remained in a more moderate, mainstream branch of Judaism. Yiftach's third birthday falls on the holiday of Lag Ba'omer, and Yoni wants to take Yiftach through a masculine rite of passage -the halakeh ceremony, where a boy's hair is cut for the first time, leaving only his ear-locks. The long journey to Mount Meron brings their conflict into sharp relief. Their encounters with various characters along the way further highlight the chasm which has developed between them. Written by Gil Mezuman
