“The Bar Mitzvah” is an international web series created by Gal Uchovsky and Ilan Peled for digital media company blackpills.
The series tells the story of two American gay tourists who travel to Israel to celebrate their son’s bar mitzvah. They are accompanied by Lilly (Ilan Peled), a truly one-of-a-kind tour guide. Convinced that their son is gay, they hope that the journey will allow him to come out of the closet. When they realize their son is actually straight, all hell breaks loose.
