A Place in Heaven

Srugim - Season 1, Ep. 1

Eliezer Shapiro | 29 min.

Srugim - Season 1, Ep. 1

Srugim takes as its starting point the generation of Modern Orthodox Jews who are simultaneously extremely observant and also, genuinely, contemporary. (The title means knitted, and refers to the stitching of a style of yarmulke, as well the characters’ full integration into Israeli society). It begins with its characters going on a familiar series of bad dates—the blind date, the speed date, the date that devolves into a fight about salaries—clichés that, as with everything about Srugim, are lightly reinvigorated by religion.

Riki Shelach | 84 min.
