When most of us think about ultra-Orthodox Jews, we might imagine men wearing long black coats and black hats. The hit Netflix TV show, Shtisel, has plenty of those men, but it also has many strong female characters. In this talk, we will learn more about Ruchami, Giti, and Tovi and how they represent real trends in Israeli ultra- Orthodox society.
