SHTISEL (BACK BY POPULAR DEMAND): Screening and Discussion

By The Temple Emanu-El Streicker Center (other events)

Tuesday, June 11 2019 7:00 PM 8:30 PM

A sensitive, loving portrayal of a multi-generational family, the breakout Israeli hit television show "Shtisel" lifts the veil on family life in the Orthodox community, long hidden by its insularity.

We meet the tough yet tender patriarch of the family, haunted by the loss of his beloved wife; his mother, addicted to soap operas; his daughter, desperate to hide her husband’s infidelity; and his son, pulled between passion for art and his allegiance to his faith and community.

Join us to watch clips from the series and meet cast members and one of the creators of this Israeli international sensation. 

Michael Aloni: Akiva (Kive) Shtisel

Doval'e Glickman: Shulem Shtisel 

Neta Riskin: Giti Weiss 

and Dikla Barkai, producer  


This is a joint program by the Temple Emanu-El Streicker Center, the Jewish Week Media Group and the UJA-Federation of New York.
