"SRUGIM" - The hit Israeli TV series, with guest Eliezer "Laizy" Shapiro, series creator and director

The Jewish Forum and The Lenore Marwil Jewish Film Festival present a two-night event, featuring  three episodes of the new season, and with a very special live guest: series creator and director Eliezer “Laizy” Shapiro! 

Applauded for its true-to-life and nuanced portrayal of the modern-Orthodox community in Jerusalem, Srugim follows five friends looking for love in Jerusalem, while grappling with issues of religious identity and commitment. The title “Srugim” refers to the style of crocheted skullcap (“Kipah Srugah”) that is often worn by modern-Orthodox men in Israel – and to the inter-woven connections among friends dealing with intimate relationships.

Rave reviews describe the series as “groundbreaking” (Israelity.com), “refreshing and clever” (Jerusalem.com), and “hugely popular among religious and secular Israelis alike” (Ynet News). It has acquired a very large and loyal following in the U.S. and Canada as well.
