Reflected Light

Haifa Film Festival

The Teshuva movement broke out in the early 1970s. Secular Israelis became fundamentalists, religious and tried to assimilate into Haredi society.
Haredi society did not accept them and many members of the second generation returned to secularism or dropped out of the education system.
Many, newly religious people, feel the need to recalculate a route.
Rabbi Oded Nitzani leaves the ultra-Orthodox city of "Beitar" and moved with his community to the town of "Maalot" in the north, far from the centers of the ultra-Orthodox communities.
