Podcast: Heretic in the House
Podcast in 4 episodes. Produced by Shalom Hartman Institute.
America has a fascination with Hasidic Jews. But these popular depictions don’t tell the whole story; they just tell the story the public wants to hear. What they hide is a complicated dance between Orthodox Judaism and those who leave the community, and a web of stereotypes that trap Hassidim, rebels, and the public alike. On « Heretic in the House », a limited podcast series from the Shalom Hartman Institute, the DSR’s Naomi Seidman takes us on a deeply moving journey with believers and heretics to uncover their hidden stories and how they grapple with Jewish identity, religion in the public square, and pluralism.
