And the Evening and the Morning Were the First Day

From the birth of their fourth child, Nachman, to the birth of their fifth child, Yoseph, Rivki and Motta, an Ultra-Orthodox couple from Jerusalem’s “Meah Shearim” neighborhood, opened up their home and let in a camera, allowing a rare glimpse into their world. They talk about their “shidduch”, their engagement and their wedding.  It is unusual for an Ultra-Orthodox couple to let a “secular” camera into their home and to share their daily routine with the viewers: everything from the ritual hand-washing that they perform every morning to the festive occasion when Nachman is taken for his first day of school.
