Meaning “refuge” in Hebrew, Miklat is a funny and ultimately poignant story about family, faith and homeland. Marc Kleinman’s parents are off to visit him in Jerusalem during his college semester study abroad. As secular Jews, they are shocked when Marc arrives at their hotel in Orthodox garb to announce his upcoming arranged marriage to a girl he has just met. Miklat is a universal tale of parents’ expectations and their children’s inevitable search for independence, personal expression, and the meaning of life. Written by Joshua Ford.
