Women Between the Holy and the Profane

Women between the holy and the profane

They give birth to children year after year.

Raising them, carrying on their shoulders ever-growing household and serving their husbands who spend their days praying and learning.

Even though the higher purpose of raising an ultra-Orthodox family with multiple children, they remain independent.

A documentary four-year in the making reveals the unconventional struggles with unconventional difficulties of those who, many years ago, chose to repent, move to the secluded and religious city Safed, and of their children – the second generation to repentance already born into a dictated reality.

The series presents the dark side of repentance, the one that is not a decree of fate or of a deity but human actions.

Because the people who make up the ultra-Orthodox society, even though they received the burden of Torah and Mitzvah and devote their lives to it, are, so the series shows, first and foremost, human beings with their many weaknesses, lusts and harms.
