shtisel ending explained
As it is, switching to kosher, keeping shabbos, being modest are major life changes. Allison has appeared on numerous television and radio networks including CBS, ABC, Fox5, TLC, The Hallmark Channel, HuffPost Live, Associate Press TV, and NPR; her articles have appeared in numerous publications including the anthology Like Water on a Rock, The Washington Times, Kveller, and The Forward. Not because I have a need to proselytize, because I really don’t.

[7], The series follows the lives of Shulem Shtisel (Dov Glickman), the Shtisel patriarch and a Rabbi at the local yeshiva,[8] as well as those of the other members of his family. Most all tell lies, most alter the rules to suit themselves to. This show is totally over-the-top and offends me as a Torah obsevant Jew who is a ba’ales t’shuva. They wanted to make great tv and they succeeded. The shows actors are fantastic, and the writing matches it. The truth is that making a show about Modern Orthodox Jews is probably just not that exciting a prospect for a writer/producer because the community is too much like the world that viewers are already familiar with. I would bet no. (And it is mostly set in Geulah – not Meah Shearim – so only the second or third most insular community). Thanks for your comment.

All of us suffer from others not seeing us as people. How silly. Thanks for your comment.

You must be talking about American Jews. On the strictly “artsy” side of this show, I further find it humurous that Netflix nation really has no idea what they are watching. Let’s hope. If everything was always going great in the Shtisel family, it wouldn’t be a compelling TV show at all. I wonder what those above who chided Allison for writing this article would respond to what you just wrote. I have a problem with abusive behavior, which has come to my attention through Project Makom and from an outreach perspective, showing non-frum people the most stringent practices could dissuade them from considering exploring an observant life. Giti is disgraced and looks for work to provide for her 5 children.

We know that smoking is bad, and it’s very rare around here. Editor’s note: An earlier version of this article mistakenly called the community “Hasidic,” said they live in “Meah Shearim,” and used the word “extreme,” which was being misunderstood by many readers as a negative. As I said, I enjoy the show as a good piece of entertainment. The scripts they read and interpret are not. Flip the script for a second. We don’t get engaged on the first, second, or even third date! When I say “modern” here, I am referring to halachic modern orthodox. I don’t know if we can take this show as the most accurate depiction of this community but I have heard of a concept before that the scarf or turban is the look for the street – not to be too attractive to other men – and then the wig (because the head is shaved) is a way to look beautiful for your husband. As for a/the broader audience, Perhaps the show might do more harm than good. Allison has been quoted or written about in numerous publications, including The Wall Street Journal, CNN, The Daily Beast, Huffington Post, and Yahoo News. I thought it was very obvious the actors are secular? I’d also call myself right wing MO, but having sons in Beis Medrash and a son-in-law who’s a fulltime Kollel guy in Israel leaning Chareidi, I guess I have a somewhat different perspective. Nearly my entire community is a professional with undergraduate and graduate degrees. But, for my husband and me, we couldn’t fathom out why these families seemed to rely on their extended family’s money as no one seemed to have a ‘proper job! She explained that she grew up on a kibbutz up north and never really interacted with charedim. Having such strict and insular orthodoxy popularized will likely dissuade a number of Jews from exploring observance since they will paint with a broad brush and orthodoxy will remain beyond where they could see themselves. ), @catholic mom.

We are as strict about adherence to halacha (Jewish law) as they are in that we use the Torah to guide every aspect of our lives, but our rabbis have less stringent approaches to many areas of Jewish practice from modesty, to kosher, to Shabbos, and more. And then they end up living on welfare which is why there is so much animosity towards the haredi on the part of secular Israelis. Shabbos was great but that was it.

I respect your views on what you consider to be an ideal for observant Jews. So that is all I want – for this information to be known and accessible to any Jew, and they can do with it what they want. Me: You think their life is basically my life? We regularly publicize wonderful Orthodox Jews (from across the spectrum of Orthodoxy) using their talents to make an impact on nearly every industry and show how ancient rituals can have deep meaning in modern times. It’s pretty accurate as far as I’m concerned. I really find that confusing. I love the show because I can hear some of them speak Yiddish and I love the language so but I’m puzzled about something and I hope someone can answer my question. i hardly couldn´t stand seeing the “self-portrait” akiva made of the “artist” before adding the red nose – could have been taken from a nazi propaganda poster of the 1930ies/40ies.

But for a healthy charedi person to live his life is a beautiful thing and we try to highlight people like this regularly. A broken engagement is not shameful like it is on Shtisel.

They have a Jewish / Israrli setting but are all about human nature too.

r/Shtisel: The Israeli television drama centered around an orthodox Jewish family living in Jerusalem. Any Orthodox Jews Defying Lockdown Orders Are Inciting Antisemites, This Woman Might Be The First Female Hasidic Grammy Nominee, The Jewish Approach to Mindfulness Will Blow Your Mind. Thanks for your comment, Jennifer. And Prisoners of War. To clarify, since you don’t know me – I’m not actually looking for a Netflix show. My friend is not trying to paint with a broad brush and I was not either in my pre-observant days and yet we could not see the nuances from the outside, though they certainly exist. I would say it will.”[4], In April 2020, series producer Barkai confirmed that a third season of Shtisel had been due to begin filming in May 2020, but would have to be postponed on account of the coronavirus pandemic. When I spoke to a Reform friend from high school the other day, my fear was solidified. If possible, verify the text with references provided in the foreign-language article. Our community has a warmth and closeness that exists in Shtisel, although, to the Haredi world’s credit, a positive side of insularity is that there are so many relatives around, someone is nearly always there for you. (BTW, note that Ruchami was reading “Anna Karenina” (disguised as “Hannah Karenina”) to her siblings as a bedtime story!

[1] Created and written by Ori Elon and Yehonatan Indursky,[1] the series premiered on 29 June 2013 on yes Oh. And I care that people know because for anyone considering increasing their observance, it is much easier to make a move to a more moderate type of observance than to live in Meah Shearim. It’s still over the top for anyone real and still depicting one of the most insular orthodox communities in the world.

Anyway, I loved it and hope it continues…. I recognized characters and situations from things we’ve dealt with in our lives and travels. Obviously I’m not judging them because they are fictional characters, but I’m just curious if anyone else was bothered by this? I don’t think most people do.

While it’s true that it’s an insular community, something I personally could never live in, for the most part the right wing has been successful in kiruv then the MO sector, with NCSY being the shining exception.

This isn’t a bridge builder that breaks down barriers. Thanks for your comment, Shay. It is strictly entertainment. We really do try to show a spectrum of orthodoxy at jitc and our mission statement makes no mention of modern orthodox ideals but rather speaks of mentchlichkeit, erhlichkeit and seichel as the foundational values for making Yiddishkeit positive. I saw them tell to a room packed with over 2,000 people. A couple of facts that are important to note: 1)There truly are observant Jews in the world who behave simlarly to the characters portrayed in Shtisel 2) Those people are generally content with their lifestyle 3)People are allowed to be exposed to the existence of such people. This friend is due with her second child soon and was feeling nervous about the impending delivery. Tell me about it… I am italian and since the godfather i have to explain everyone that i am not a mafioso and i do not call my friends ‘paisan’. So let’s leave it at that. Her: Really?

It’s secular actors…portraying Hasidic people…who are acting in a fictional story..about Hasidic ultra Orthodox Jews.
