S.Y. Agnon & The Hit Series Shtisel

WebYeshiva’s Rabbi Jeffrey Saks will be hosting a special online event on Zoom for Jerusalism and Tel Aviv Review of Books on the impact of Hebrew literature’s only Nobel laureate, Shai Agnon, on the hit TV series Shtisel.

Religious or secular, Jew or non-Jew, Shtisel is enjoyed by people of different faiths and walks of life from around the world.

The story of a Haredi family in Jerusalem, Shtisel incorporates various outside references, including that of Agnon, making it a witty, inviting, and very real look into the insular world of the ultra-Orthodox in Israel.
