Ray Cohen couldn’t be happier. His daughter, Tara, is to be married to Leo, an Israeli studying for his Ph.D. at Melbourne Uni. His wife, Rosh, has finally forgiven him for botching the house renovation and the local Rabbi loves Ray’s architectural plans for the new synagogue, a big contract. Then in walk his prospective in-laws. Kitty, it turns out, is his ex-girlfriend from 30 years ago, before she converted. Ray’s been acting like a good Jewish mensch to his wife and daughter forever, so if the secret gets out he’s ruined. But he has even bigger problems when he discovers the rabbi had a stroke, leaving the congregation in the hands of his rollerblading youngest, BB. And BB doesn’t like Ray’s plans. The plans that were going to pay for the over-the-top wedding he’s arranged. Even worse, Ray has lost his ketubah which means Tara can’t prove she is Jewish, which means she can’t get married.
His day had started so well…
