And Thou Shalt Love

Ohad, who is studying in the special “Hesder” program for orthodox soldiers of the Israel Defense Forces, experiences profound loneliness while he conceals from others that he is gay. He calls a religious hotline for help, and is advised that forty days of fasting and repentance will extinguish his homosexual tendencies. After the proscribed period, Ohad is convinced that he is “cured,” but then his boyfriend Nir returns from the army. Ohad, who falls in love with him again, finds he can no longer evade the difficult questions, both within himself, and between himself and God
