LESS THAN KOSHER, Director: David Am Rosenberg Canada, 2023, with Shaina Silver-Baird, David Reale

A wild child of a would-be rock singer, 30 years old and down on her luck, unexpectedly discovers that the road to stardom begins, in of all places, her family’s synagogue. A rollicking music-filled comedy with a heart and one heck of a powerhouse voice, this winner of the Audience Award at the 2023 Toronto Jewish Film Festival has Viv (Silver-Baird) blundering back in into her previously overlooked Jewish identity when lack of cash causes her to reluctantly accept a job as a synagogue cantor. From failed chanteuse to Judeo-pop princess in the blink of an eye, she is a sensation, and the rabbi’s married son isn’t the only one noticing. The lure of a new career opportunity and the thrills of illicit love play havoc with her promise to sing at her sister’s Bat Mitzvah, and Viv goes in search of her missing conscience.

Writer/producer/actor Shaina Silver-Baird will be present for audience discussion.

“A fresh and authentic portrayal of Jewish life and culture…funny and beautiful and heartwarming.” -Shaked Karabelnicoff, Unpacked
