In this new documentary, Paula Weiman-Kelman tells three stories of spiritual innovation, focusing on young Jews in Israel, Canada, and the US. Fringes portrays extraordinary young Jews who have ventured boldly beyond traditional structures to craft unusual approaches to Jewish life. These outsiders, dwelling on the fringes of conventional Jewish society, are the authentic insiders, pioneers in a new landscape of alternative Jewish experience. These three stories – vibrant, quirky, moving – are braided together like the fringes of a tallit, to create an inspiring portrait of cutting-edge Judaism in the 21st century.
