One Israeli Creation for the Weekend



Srugim is a successful Israeli television drama (sold on Amazon with English subtitles). So far, three seasons were aired, in Israel and in the U.S (on The Jewish Channel on cable television).

The title of the series, "Srugim", comes from the type of Kippah often worn by members of the Religious Zionist group the series depicts, the "Kippah sruga" (knitted yarmulke).

Srugim follows five Modern Orthodox Jewish single men and women, living in Jerusalem. Yifat and Hodaya are two 30 year old friends, sharing an apartment in Katmon neighborhood in Jerusalem. Natty, Yifat's childhood friend, rents an apartment with a roommate, Amir, who is recently divorced. Another member of the group is Reut, a successful accountant. The five become good friends, and spend Shabbat nights together, overcoming their personal loneliness in the community where there are hardly any single 30 something men and women.
