Menashe (2017): Joshua Z. Weinstein’s Debut, Tale of Hassidic Jew in Brooklyn

Menashe, the feature debut by Joshua Z. Weinstein, is set in Borough Park, Brooklyn, and is almost entirely in Yiddish.

The eponymous protagonist fights to keep custody of his son following the death of his wife.

The Hasidic community demands he lead a more ordered life and find a new spouse, neither of which comes easily to this kind but awkward loner.
