The Jewish Federation of Reading/Berks announces the return of the Reading Jewish Film Series, co-sponsored by the Rubin Educational Fund of Jewish Federation of Reading/Berks and Fox Theatres. The public is invited to a screening of Kiss Me Kosher on Wednesday, March 9 at 7 p.m. at Fox Berkshire, 800 Berkshire Blvd. Wyomissing.

A subversive love story between clashing cultures and families, Kiss Me Kosher is a romantic misadventure crossing all borders. When two generations of Israeli women fall for a German woman and a Palestinian man, chaos follows. What happens with lovers who don’t fit but do belong together?

Juliane Köhler, Bernhard Schütz, Irit Kaplan and John Carroll Lynch round out a delightful international cast in Shirel Peleg’s brave debut that finds laugh-out-loud comedy in even the darkest, most cringeworthy situations. The run time is 105 minutes and is in English, Hebrew and German with subtitles.

Admission is $8 or $6 for Jewish Cultural Center members. Tickets can be purchased online at or at the box office.

The Reading Jewish Film Series has been screening Jewish films in partnership with Fox Theatres since 2015. This screening marks the first return to in-person screenings since February 2020.
