Abstract:

"Tells the story of five young people born and raised within the ultra-Orthodox Jewish world who no longer wish to remain on the inside. As children they grew up in a closed society where deviation from the rules of conduct is often punishable by ostracism, intimidation or worse. As young adults they pay a steep price for abandoning their parents and community to seek the freedom to make their own choices. From the Hasidic enclaves of Montreal, Brooklyn and Jerusalem come stories of conflict, coercion and struggle. Tinged with pain and unexpected humor, "Leaving the Fold" documents the process by which our five heroes emerged from a strictly controlled society into a baffling secular world of endless choices: What should I wear? What shall I become? Who will I marry? Once everything was decided for them. Now they must decide for themselves. But the answers don't always come easily"--Container.

Leaving the Fold (Quitter le Bercail)

(EMRO user published 2010-02-22 ) Very Good Permalink
Leaving the Fold profiles five young men and women who left “ultra-orthodox” Hasidic Jewish communities and started new lives in the secular world. They talk about why they chose secular life, what happened when they left home, and the impact Orthodox Judaism still has on their lives.
