After three successful seasons on Israeli television, creators Laizy Shapira and Chava Divon decided that their tale of Modern Orthodox singles would become, “extremist, ridiculous, and uninteresting” should it continue. There are millions of people around the planet (including secular and haredi Jews) who would disagree.

The beginning of the third and final season! Even if you hadn’t seen (or been obsessed by) it yet, you didn’t want to miss the CFIC’s most recent offerings from this group of observant Friends–a graphic designer, an accountant, a biblical studies major, a grammar teacher, and a doctor—living in the vibrant Katamon section of Jerusalem. The show featured the struggles that some of the characters have being religious while trying to date, find love and make a living. Each of the three women and two men was so telegenic and engaging, no prior Srugim background was required.
