There's no marquee so you'll have difficulty finding it. It's above a Turkish restaurant.

Description

Mountain Jews tells the story of the righteous Isaac, a young Orthodox Jew from Brooklyn who observes his community’s laws and never dates women. When he finally gets married, Isaac schleps his new bride to a dark and sacred mountain in Israel directly below the “Gate of Paradise” (see pix below) in order to consummate their marriage in a Holy Spot. His bride, known in the USA as “the most beautiful, Kosher American Jewess in the North East and the Bible belt,” prefers to spend the night eating some fresh rugelach (cookies) instead. When the cookies are finished and Isaac is just about to get his wish, a creature calling himself Prophet Muhammad suddenly shows up and declares that unless he gets the bride for himself, “my followers will blow themselves up in Gaza, Mali, Detroit, Denmark, Pakistan, Chicago and al-Quds to protect my lost honor.” But before this Prophet can get any bride he must contend with a Jewish Goddess, mother of all Divas, who also shows up on the mountain and has her own set of demands.
