Description

We follow two young Jews who are single and looking for a partner to marry - Natalie, 22 and Richard, 27. It presents the process many young British Jews follow when looking for a marriage partner, the difficulties of finding someone from within the small Jewish community and the dilemma of whether to marry in or outside of the Jewish faith. They share their criteria for a husband or wife, and let us follow what happens when they meet a potential marriage partner.
