In the footsteps of “Shtisel”: being an Ultra-Orthodox Jew

The Israeli drama series “Shtisel” (launched on Netflix in 2018) became an international hit, and was particularly popular in the US. The series introduced, for the first time, the Ultra-Orthodox (Haredi) Jewish community in Jerusalem and provided an insider’s view into the daily lives of Ultra-orthodox Jews and their interaction with the secular majority around them.

In this two lectures series we seek to promote knowledge on this group in Judaism, which strictly observes Jewish Halacha and isolates itself from the internet and any mainstream media. This is also a unique opportunity to get closer to the wonderful characters of “Shtisel” and the writer who created them, Jonathan Indursky - an ex-Ultra-Orthodox himself who left a prestigious Yeshiva for filmmaking.

Lecture 2: Yehonatan Indursky, co-writer of “Shtisel”  

Yehonatan Indursky is the co-writer of “Shtisel” (with Ori Elon) and the creator of several other highly acclaimed films on ultra-orthodox Jews (Ponevezh Time, Autonomies). He is a graduate of the elite ultra-Orthodox Ponevezh Yeshiva, and later a top alum of the Jerusalem Sam Spiegel Film School.
