Follows young Hasidic Jews aged 18 – 25 in Montreal, New York and Jerusalem who decide they can no longer live in their ultra orthodox communities, so they venture into the secular world. To do so they have to turn their backs on their relationships with their parents and their siblings.
A film about spiritual journeys in the opposite direction; from the certainties/constraints of religious fundamentalism to the uncertainties of personal freedom.


Compass in general is a superb weekly religious affairs program, and their archive is downloadable. It is one of the joys of intelligent public funded (read communist) television we have a wealth of downunder.

I often watch compass. I find it very uneven .Sometimes excellent but not always. I saw that show but was not at all surprised.


I've had discussions about Judaism with an Hasidic Rabbi at an online Yeshiva. As a result,I had a look at the mitzvot, the 613 commandents which control the life of the devout Orthodox Jew. They make horrifying reading.


The link below is worth a glance if you're interested.

Compass is a meta-filter and does little of its own production. It gives equal time to all things religious, even atheism - it did screen the Dawkins series. It will never please everyone, but it does a damn fine job trying.
