The second episode has already been filmed, said Gottfried, and is being edited in time to be released in about a month.Overall five episodes have been planned out, and the timing hinges largely on funding; the show has partnered with the non-profit JENLA (Jewish Entertainment Network-Los Angeles) to make all donations tax deductible.In the Hebrew year 2448 (1312 BCE), after crossing the Red Sea, the Jews came to a place called Mara -- literally "bitter," because the water there was bitter.The people complained and Moses miraculously made the waters turn sweet.Unlike most nations of the world, the Jewish nationality is not determined by fathers, but by mothers.Kabbalah explains that the souls of jewish women at the moment of conception "pull" the jewish soul. If you neglected to count the Omer in the evening, and did remember to count the following day, then the next evening you should continue the count as usual, with a blessing.
The reason why one is not permitted to say the blessing is because the Torah writes "You shall count... Therefore, if a person missed counting one entire day, it can no longer be considered complete.
“Here’s a young guy, and he’s not typically what people think of when you think the word rabbi.
I think there’s a lot we can play with him exploring his position.”While the cast is made up largely of Modern Orthodox Jews, the artist Sarah is played by Sara Scur, a Seventh Day Adventist who was drawn to the project in part because it would allow her to observe Shabbat.
The material side is very important and requires special attention to create the described way.
To match the image of a jewish women, they should never have to show that they are not interested in material things.
Gottfried, Hoffman and Jessica Schechter, who all co-produce and star in the show, filmed a separate You Tube video explaining the premise for the show and appealing for donations.“Think ‘Friends’ but with Jews,” said Hoffman.
