Leaving Hasidism

“What happens when individuals try to leave Britain’s Hasidic Jewish community?

Strictly-orthodox Jews live by 19th-century traditions in a modern world. But there are some who struggle with this way of life.
In this documentary, two people reveal what happened to them once they made the decision to leave – a decision that meant letting go of everything they knew. This is a story about sacrifice and tradition, and a clash between two worlds.”
