Sushi, Sumo and Cinema on Sunday

Menorah serves up a Japanese dinner and a brand new hit comedy about Israeli sumo wrestlers on Sunday, May 6, at Har HaShem’s South Building.

Hilarious and heart-warming, “A Matter of Size” is feature film about four overweight guys who learn to love themselves through the Japanese sport of sumo wrestling.

When Herzl (Itzik Cohen) starts working in a Japanese restaurant, he discovers the world of Sumo, where large people such as himself are honored and appreciated. Through the restaurant owner, a former Japanese Sumo coach, Herzl and his friends fall in love with a sport involving “two fatsos in diapers and girly hairdos. A “coming out” story with a twist, the comedy is utterly irresistible!

Part sports drama, part love story, this sweetly absurd tale of forlorn blue-collar guys pursuing a difficult goal… recalls audience-pleasing fare such as The Full Monty.” – Variety

The evening, co-sponsored by the Har HaShem Israel Partnership Committee, includes a catered Japanese dinner and film at 6:00 pm for $25 in advance. Tickets are $10 for the 7:00 pm film only.
