Named Best Drama (2009) by the Israeli Film and Television Academy

The smash-hit Israeli TV series Srugim explores the world of young professional singles in the Modern Orthodox community of Jerusalem. Come fall in love with the show that has made Israelis laugh and cry, and has sparked spirited discussion and debate in the Israeli media and around the Zionist world.

Literally meaning “knitted” for the knitted skullcaps worn by its characters, Srugim is a light drama that displays the unique circumstances of a new social class of single men and women in their thirties. They live in rented apartments in the “Jerusalem Swamp”, some have prestigious jobs, but they are all seeking love and an escape from the situation in which they have been entrapped – a temporary waiting period “until marriage” which has turned into a permanent situation. Follow them in their attempts to live normal lives within the tight constraints that religion and tradition place upon them and in their quest to find what everyone seeks – warmth and love. Get to know the artist, the doctor, the newly-divorced guy and the good girl…plus all the rest of their friends who never expected to still be living the singles life.
