Meet H. Alan Scott: a gay former Mormon/converted Jew/cancer survivor/writer- comedian, as he finds his spiritual path while preparing for his Bar Mitzvah, traveling to Israel, and immersing himself in Jewish life and culture. Along the way, he meets with other converts, comedians, mensches, rabbis, Hebrew tutors, Jewish educators, Sixth Grade spiritual advisers, and other miscellaneous “mishpocha”. View the Jewish experience through new eyes, in this humorous and poignant celebration of all the things that make the Jewish identity, faith, and culture so appealing to Gentiles.
