Yosef Shiloach (Hebrew: יוסף שילוח‎; July 9, 1941 – January 3, 2011) was an Israeli actor of Kurdish-Jewish origin. Shiloach was considered by many in Israel one of the nation's most beloved actors, mostly thanks to his parts in many Bourekas Films, a series of films made primarily in the 1970s, portraying the life of Sepharadim in an exaggerated comic manner, where he played parts of people of Persian descent. He also played in a number of international films, such as I Love You Rosa, The House on Chelouche Street and Rambo III. Shiloach also dubbed Arik (Ernie) on the Israeli TV version of Sesame Street, Rechov SumSum.

Shiloach was born in 1941 in Iranian Kurdistan and emigrated to Israel at the age of 9. He died on January 3, 2011, aged 69, after suffering from cancer for a long time.

An Iranian physician, Sayed Bozorg "Moody" Mahmoody wants to visit Iran with his American family. He claims that his Iranian family wants to meet his wife Betty and daughter Mahtob, and asks them to come with him for a two-week visit. Despite her deep fears about visiting Iran, particularly due to the Iranian Hostage Crisis, Betty reluctantly agrees. Upon their arrival, they are all greeted warmly by Moody's family, but shortly before their flight back to America, Moody announces to his wife that he wishes for them to stay in Iran. Betty realises that she has been deceived by her husband, even though Moody took an oath that they would return to America, "swearing" on the sacred Koran. When she protests, Moody strikes her, and nobody in Moody's family sympathises with her.
