How does a gay, former-Mormon, cancer-survivor who converted to Judaism at the age of 34 prepare for his bar mitzvah? Determined to be “the best Jew he can be” before becoming a man in the eyes of Jewish law, comedian H. Alan Scott ‘s adventure takes him to Israel during Tel Aviv Pride week, where he shops for his first tallit, prays at the Kotel, and takes a lesson in shofar-blowing. A coming-of-age story about a person who literally finds his tribe, Latter
Day Jew is a tender tale of self-discovery layered with comedy, pathos, and unadulterated joy!
