Profiling Hassidic punk rockers, Yiddish street performers, African-American Jewish activists and more, Punk Jews explores an emerging movement of provocateurs and committed Jews who are asking, each in his or her own way, what it means to be Jewish in the 21st century. Jewish artists, activists and musicians from diverse backgrounds and communities are defying norms and expressing their Jewish identities in unconventional ways. In the process, they are challenging stereotypes and breaking down barriers. Meet Yishai, lead singer of Moshiach Oi, the Sukkos Mob of the New Yiddish Rep, the hipster Orthodox participants of Cholent, the Amazing Amy Yoga Yenta, Kal Holczler founder of Voices of Dignity, and African American Hassidic hip hop sensation Y-Love.
