Kosher on Cor­rie

The Jewish Chronicle - - LIFE -

ITV’S long-run­ning soap Coro­na­tion Street has been run­ning a Jewish sto­ry­line in re­cent episodes and it came to a crunch this week.

So­cial worker Nicola Ru­bin­stein (right, played by Nicola Thorp) is the daugh­ter of Amanda Ru­bin­stein, who is mar­ried to Isaac but had an af­fair with Liver­pool builder Pat Phe­lan.

Since Phe­lan be­lieves Nicola could be his daugh­ter, he asks his wife Eileen to in­vite her to din­ner so they can take a DNA swab. Eileen lays on a spread of gefilte fish, fe­lafel and other Jewish-friendly dishes, although Nicola con­fesses that whereas her par­ents were re­li­gious, she is not.

The DNA re­sults were re­vealed this week — but in case you haven’t yet seen the episode, my lips are sealed.
