The Jewish community in Manchester is a kaleidoscope of tradition, religion and extravagance. Strictly Kosher revolves around three families and their friends and paints a fascinating picture of the many different personalities and levels of religious observance in Manchester’s Jewish community. It offers an insight into lifestyles which range from one extreme – orthodox and strict - to the other – traditional and extravagant - a diverse community bound together by one faith.

I understand about the need to cover the body in respect to the women, but the bridesmaids dresses could have been quite lovely if a jacket had been made instead of those ugly long sleeve white t-shirts...A plain jacket is all that it would take and then the dresses would have looked elegant. Same thing about wearing a sleeveless dress, a simple lightweight jacket would make the dresses look nice....
I loved the shop keeper. I loved his personality! This series was very interesting and very informative. Thank you!
This documentary literally solidified my ambition to convert to Judaism those years ago. Such a beautiful documentary, and such wonderful people.
I hope to visit the Manchester Jewish community some day. ❤️
The bar mitzvah had me in tears. Anti semitism is real, I'm grateful my ministry Has taught me to love the Jewish people, our elder brothers , and their land. The land that the Lord loves, the land that I wish to live in. Pray for the peace of Jerusalem.
Thank you for this lovely series. I was brought up Christian, but these people are the salt of the earth. I could never understand how any human being could design and carry out organized genocide. I also will never understand what the Jews did to anyone else that was so awful. May God bless Jack. Seeing his bar mitzvah brought me to tears. Beautiful soul.
I only mention it because I don’t know if it means something different coming from a non-Jewish person. As a Muslim, to hear support over any Muslim suffering would mean more to me from a non-Muslim because of how common anti-Muslim sentiment is. I have a Jewish friend who has shared with me how common antisemitism is so I didn’t know if it would feel similar.
Such an amazing story about Jack. As a person who had family members who fled before, some who survived and some who didn't, I am amazed that he has such a positive attitude towards life. While I'm was not in that horrible situation, I hope to never be, I don't know if I would have the same attitude as he.
My heart went out to Jack and his story. Total love & respect for this man who survived the intense
hatred and cruelty he and millions of others were subjected to by a regime which defies description.
Not enough was done after the war to bring mass murderers to justice. Their crimes were so
appalling no wonder they ran to ground like the rats they were. They knew they had done wrong and
would have to answer for their crimes. Only a few did.
Another day another pound Another day another euro Another day another shekel Another day another bitcoin Another day another yen Another day another peso ... what am i doing with my life... im trying a chewie skittles... not bad not bad
+S W I imagine the drama.
Source: raised in a Jewish household, everyone is right and everyone else is wrong. Constant arguments about politics, food, and everything else.
Can be fun but can also be very mishegas.
+S W Not necessarily just Jews. But the Manchester, UK Jewish community. Or, any religious community. A story of any religion/culture. And why not? The less anyone bothers to know of other religions and cultures, the less there is tolerance. Toxic, willful ignorance breeds hate. Like it or not, we all cohabitate our minuscule ball, in an infinite sky. So why not exercise the best of human intellect and loving heart, and be good to all? Honor our Earth and every inhabitant. How can a human choose hate and intolerance toward another human being? Takes more work to hate than to love. Takes more work to hate, than to help. The cultivation of hate: look in the mirror. Ask yourself if you are part of the solution, or part of the problem.
I totally love Bernette and Joel! I watch them because they make me laugh, be happy, and be glad I am with them in this human race. Jack is the quiet voice, yet whose few chosen words erect a great wail of despair. The one of the few, who has survived the unspeakable crimes of the Nazi atrocities. The one who has somehow survived, despite the horror, terror, and abject sadism of his time. Yet he isa man of grace, insight, dignity, and the best example of our humanity. I can't intellectually process the horror of the loss of his family, but I can totally appreciate the profound message that this great man conveys. If I could, I would wrap my arms around him, and give him the longest hug.
Amazing, they do all things that others are criticised for. Yet they are allowed to be proud of their religion and culture.
I have no problem with their way if life. But I have a problem with those hypocrites that criticise everyone else. Be fair and equal.
I've enjoyed watching their life and think it's lovely that they value family community life.
you don't know survivors. they tend to have guilt and trauma, and passed it on in particular ways, but they also tend to be very grateful for life and many made wonderful lives after the war--like jack says, "this is my revenge against hitler." he means life, children, grandchildren, happiness, love.
Although I am not Jewish, I have much respect for their traditions and ways of life. Despite the hardships of these beautiful people, their customs and traditions live on. That is the most beautiful thing. How can you not appreciate all cultures, religions, and ways of life, other than your own? My heart hurts for their suffering throughout history and I cannot imagine the pain of the ones who lived through such tragedies.
Wehen Mr Aizenberg asks so sadly :"is this humanity?". I just thought:" Only humans commit such a crime!,because i never heard of many animal, that kills millions of his own kind without any real reason .
What a beautiful wedding dress Erica is wearing! I love the criss-cross puffing on the skirt.
I love the wildly fun wedding dancing. I can understand that by not needing to worry what men will see, you can dance with more abandon. (Not that I want to take up the practice.)
I love this show and it makes me sad knowing about the Israel and Palestine situation. I wish they can co-exist and stop killing eachother. Jack is a beautiful soul. I hope the Jewish people rise above and keep their humanity.
I loved Joel's 'breast man' joke....i think it was lost on the French girl, lol! I love the Jewish weddings even though i'm not Jewish...it beats hearing 'Come on, Eileen' that's forever played at our weddings in the UK. I loved watching Erica and Jevi...long may they be happy. Thank you for this wonderful series, Barcroft TV!
I feel for this elder man Jack, his mother and younger brother we're exterminated during the war. I am very happy that God had his hand on this elder man to keep him alive through this, so he can have a family. And so he can tell his story about the war. I don't wish this upon anybody, but someday the Sunday law will come and anyone that is a Sabbath keeper so am I will be exterminated, jailed and tortured. I know Jesus will protect us during that time
In a shop: - Give me a roll of toilet paper. - What color would you like? - White please, I will color it myself… - Hi, John! I have heard that you died three times already! - Hmm, but you’re no better – you haven’t come to any of my funerals. Could you fax over a copy? No, I can‘t fax because of where I live. Where do you live? The 21st century. Get a life - I’ve heard they’re cheap now on eBay Thanks to Blaine Zernechel.
