I just finished the two seasons of Shtisel. The twenty-four episodes take the viewer into the world of Israeli Orthodox Jews. Themes of empowerment, art versus religion, forgiveness, and rituals are explored in this microscopic insular community. Slowly you will fall in love with these unforgettable characters. The gorgeously talented Michael Aloni plays the young artist Akiva who goes through an unfortunate series of failed potential marriage proposals. His eyes will make love to you. The miraculous Shira Hass from Unorthodox is spellbinding. This is the ultimate joyous escapist binge.
