A Jew and a Muslim Walk into a Bar

A Jew and Muslim Walk into a Bar is the story of two star crossed lovers who do not end up killing themselves.


Jonathan and Elnaz meet at a bar one night, end up dating and want to get married, it’s the perfect love story. Except that Jonathan is a Jew, Elnaz is a Muslim and their families actually give a shit about that sort of thing.


In today’s day and age, tolerance for other religions, races, and politics is a given, if you’re a 20 or 30 something year old ideological yuppie. But the likelihood is that your parents, aunts, uncles, grandparents and other family friends are likely to have more… “conservative” views. So what do you do? You tolerate the intolerant so that you can get married and become their family, meanwhile learning alternative historical facts, hear ongoing conspiracy theories, uncover unexpected genealogies, and discover more similarities than differences.


But, do you still end up getting married?
