A thirteen year old boy in New York City discovers an abandoned Lower East Side synagogue and joins the motley congregation trying to rebuild it. His hip, liberal parents freak out when they discover his involvement with 'religion.' The ensuing conflict in the family and its ultimate resolution is the subject of this unique comedy-drama.
Stars Jon Matthews, Robert Klein, Phyllis Newman, and Virginia Graham. Recommended for teens and older.
