Calling all fans of “Shtisel”: Join Yiddish Forward Editor Rukhl Schaechter in the Crown Heights neighborhood of Brooklyn as she leads a discussion called “How ‘Shtisel’ Has Changed the Way We Look at Haredi Jews.”
“The Heart, Art and Food of Shtisel” will take place Sunday, July 28 from 2:30 to 5:30 p.m. at the Besht Center (563 Empire Boulevard). It will also be an opportunity to schmooze with fellow fans of Shtisel, a binge-worthy show available on Netflix that centers around an Orthodox family in Jerusalem, and view Jewish and Israeli art. Kosher dairy snacks and desserts will be served.
