Kosher Soul - Netflix
The adage says opposites attract... and in the case of Lifetime's all-new docu-sitcom Kosher Soul (#KosherSoul), which follows the lives of Los Angeles stylist Miriam Sternoff, who is Jewish, and her fiancé, southern and African-American comedian O'Neal McKnight, they do. Divergent worlds will clash as Miriam and O'Neal's friends and family prepare for the couple's nuptials, including O'Neal's conversion to Judaism and their future as husband and wife. Despite doubts and concerns from their loved ones, recently engaged Miriam and O'Neal are preparing to marry and begin their lives in a Jewish home. Madly in love, O'Neal is ready to prove his dedication to Miriam by converting to Judaism in order to be accepted by her mother, Nancy, who wants her future grandchildren to be raised Jewish. At the same time, Miriam is trying to blend O'Neal's southern upbringing and traditions into her life. What results is a hilarious and touching peek into the love and affection between two soul mates whose deep and emotional connection overcomes cultural barriers.

Kosher Soul - Birds - Netflix
The Torah names only a few birds that may not be eaten; those not in the list are presumed to be kosher. However, the precise identity of the unclean birds is a matter of contention in traditional Jewish texts. It is therefore common to eat only birds with a clear masorah (tradition) of being kosher in at least one Jewish community, such as domestic fowl. In Leviticus 11 it states the eagle, vulture, black vulture, red kite, black kite, raven, horned owl, screech owl, gull, or any kind of hawk. The little owl, cormorant, the great owl, white owl, desert owl, osprey, stork, heron, hoopoe and bats.
