The New Black (Season 2)

A new season of the award-winning Israeli series, following the exploits of four students who dropped out of their prestigious Yeshiva and are searching for their place in the world. In this season they’ll open a yeshiva on a central, non-religious street in Jerusalem – to the chagrin of the neighbors – and not only that, but right across the street from a co-ed secular seminary. Disagreements and differences will crop up soon enough, but there’ll also be moments of harmony and bridge-building between the two worlds.
