Zoom Meeting

Join Sisterhood: Women of Wise and Rabbi Karen Thomashow for a lively forum on Unorthodox, the Netflix series.

Based on the best-selling memoir by Deborah Feldman, Unorthodox is the emotional, intimate story of Esty, a young Hasidic Jewish woman. Esty flees an arranged marriage in Brooklyn to start a new life in Germany, only to have her past catch up to her.

A meaningful conversation will tackle the choices women have as wives, mothers, and Jews. Esty’s inspiring and heartbreaking decisions and what Reform and Orthodox women have in common will also be discussed. This will be a special opportunity to learn and speak about the meaning of this gripping series.
