American Birthright follows an Israeli-American who grapples with religion, love, and identity after her younger sister marries outside the faith. Becky explores her identity as an Israeli immigrant in Los Angeles by consulting rabbis, religious experts, mentors, and family around her initial question, “should I marry Jewish?” What she finds changes her initial question to “why be Jewish?” and shifts the very course of her life.
