Moshe Yehuda, a Hasidic Rabbi and amateur Hora dancer, enters a big televised Tango competition to save his Hebrew school from bankruptcy. There is only one problem: due to his orthodoxreligious beliefs, he is not allowed to touch a woman! At odds with his wife and five kids, the Grand Rabbi of his orthodox sect, and Moshe’s entire Hasidic community in Crown Heights, Brooklyn, Moshe is forced to ask a Catholic priest, a Muslim imam, and a Sikh holy man for advice. Together, they hash out a plan to help Moshe dance in the Tango contest “without sacrificing his sacred beliefs”…setting in motion a fun, passionate dance movie. Heart-pumping and heartwarming, “TANGO SHALOM” tests the bonds of family and community, and the bounds of tolerance and faith. Starring Lainie Kazan, Renee Taylor, Joseph Bologna, Karina Smirnoff, Jos and Claudio Laniado and Judi Beecher.
