An award-winning Netflix drama, Shtisel is not just interesting and engaging as a series, it also holds importance as it shows the human side of the Haredi, as large as life characters contend with their most human desires in the language of contemporary Jerusalem.
Speaker - Pnina Pfeuffer
Speakers at the event include Shtisel actress Neta Riskin (Giti Weiss), alongside Shtisel co-creator Yehonatan Indursky and Jerusalem-based feminist activist Pnina Pfeuffer as they delve deep into Israel's evolving Haredi community. The event will not be recorded, hence if you'd like to be a part of this talk, register now.
The general concept is that Haredi and feminism aren't natural bedfellows, however, for Pnina Pfeuffer (one of the speakers), there is no contradiction in the groundbreaking work she is doing. You can listen to a short talk about the subject that she gave about Haredi women in politics HERE.
Join the speakers as a comparative is drawn between the world created by the film, alongside real-life challenges that span beyond social and economic challenges to include feminism, equality, and justice. Hit Going and find out more on the event page.
