The 8 Best Jewish Weddings Ever Seen On Screen

8.’Family Guy’ insists that all Jews are cheap (thanks guys) but it’s still a nice wedding (even though the Nazis get involved.)

7.Vince Vaughn and Owen Wilson know how to bring the ruach to a Jewish wedding.

6.Imagining a wedding in the Belorussian woods, surrounded by Jewish partisans. We’ve got more on the real Bielski family’s unbelievable story here.

5.The most delightful reality TV of all time is the show that featured this young Orthodox couple’s marriage. (Disclaimer: The Schmooze went to elementary school with the groom.) This may be the best and most accurate hora-ing on the silver screen.

4.Don’t ever, EVER sleep on “Yentl.”

3.This Israeli movie about a single woman throwing herself a wedding is the exact halfway point between a romantic comedy and a horror movie.

2.The most famous Jewish wedding on “Sex and The City” is Charlotte York’s marriage to Harry Goldenblatt. But the best Jewish wedding on “Sex and the City” is this gay wedding officiated by Liza Minelli as a gay men’s choir sings “Sunrise, Sunset.”

1.And the indisputable classic.
