The new Israeli hit TV series Shtisel – from the producers of the beloved seriesSrugim – focuses on a Haredi family living in Jerusalem.
Akiva and Shulem Shtisel, father and son, sit on a little balcony overlooking streets of the Geula neighborhood of Jerusalem. A year has passed since mother died. All the other children have left the nest, and only Shulam and Akiva remain - quarreling, making up, and laughing. All will change when Akiva meets Elisheva. Shtisel is a magical glimpse into an often closed-off world, overflowing with surprisingly poignant, if restrained, romanticism.
