Jerusalem Singles

Jameel writes:

Tonight on YES TV (YES STARS Channel) at 10 PM marks the debut of the “Srugim” TV series, directed by Laizy Shapiro.

Focusing on the religious singles scene in the Katamon area of Jerusalem, “Srugim” tackles many situations including; joint shabbat meals, young divorced singles, being shomer negiya (or not), life as a single when friends around you are all married with children, the dating scene, Ohel Nechama, and basically every situation of day to day life for Jerusalem’s religious singles.

Though the actors themselves are not religious, the director and screen writers are — and they needed to quickly get the actors up to speed on what to do…and not do, as religious singles. The previews and behind the scenes show look promising, so this looks to be a decent show.

Of course, personally knowing the director means I’m not biased in the slightest.

If you’re going to watch TV, don’t waste your time with Hisardut/Israeli survivor trash shows – watch a quality series, by a talented director and graduate of Ma’aleh, Israel’s religious film and art school.
