Hallmark's HANUKKAH ON RYE Starring Jeremy Jordan Now Streaming on Peacock

The film premiered last night on the Hallmark Channel.

After premiering last night on the Hallmark Channel, Hanukkah on Rye starring Jeremy Jordan is now streaming on Peacock.

About Hanukkah on Rye

Molly (Grobglas) is poised to become the fourth generation of her family to run Gilbert's Deli on the Lower East Side of New York City. Now, almost 100 years later, Gilbert's is the last old-school Jewish deli standing...and it's getting harder and harder to make ends meet. Meanwhile, Jacob's (Jordan) family are "deli royalty" in Southern California and have a completely different way of doing business.

Jacob wants to make his own mark in the deli world and to do that, he's spearheading the expansion of Leven's to New York City just blocks away from Gilbert's. A couple weeks before the first night of Hanukkah, Jacob's "bubby" (grandmother) gives Jacob an early Hanukkah gift: she's signed him up with an infamous matchmaker. Molly's bubby has the same idea.

According to the rules, Jacob and Molly must write handwritten letters under assumed names to get to know each other. As they begin to write to each other under their pseudonyms of Beth and David, they begin to fall for each other. At the same time, Jacob has come to New York to close the deal for the new Leven's location, and Molly and Jacob meet in real life, and neither is aware they know each other as Beth and David through their letters.

There's an instant romantic connection between them over Hanukkah week until Molly learns Jacob's identity and realizes he could potentially put her family's deli out of business. Molly is torn between "David," who she's started to fall for thanks to his letters, and Jacob, who she can't being attracted to despite their conflicts. In the end, will Molly and Jacob put their differences aside and get their own Hanukkah miracle?
