Have you got it or not? London Jews argue the existence of ‘mazel’ or luck

Mazel, or luck, can change fortunes in an instant: it is evasive, unreliable, and yet also indispensable. While some deride it as superstition, others consider it a science. In Christopher Thomas Allen’s film Schlimazeltov!, the existence of mazel remains a subject of constant debate for Jewish people in London, among them the comedian and Steve Coogan collaborator David Schneider, the economist Ronny Razin, and Rabbi Harvey Belovski.

Director: Christopher Thomas Allen

Producer: Andrew Hinton
