AJFF Presents: Y-Love Movie

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Y-Love is the "premier Orthodox Jewish entity in hip hop." Raised in inner-city Baltimore, Yitz Jordan became fascinated with Judaism as a child, attended Yeshiva in his teens and endured a short-lived arranged marriage to a Yiddish speaking woman who didn't think he was religious enough. Music is the medium through which Y-Love connects to his faith; he seems most at ease spouting rhymes on a Jerusalem stage, surrounded by adoring, religious fans. This documentary paints a poignant portrait of a perennial outsider: a Black, Jewish, gay orphan searching for a home. 

This 50 minute movie will be followed by a presentation and discussion with Y-Love.
