This series is about how religious Jewish young people in Israel go about trying to find their partner within the limits of the Orthodox Jewish Community. The Israeli Jewish men and the women are concerned with keeping Jewish Law and at the same trying to achieve the happiness, love, marriage, and family which lie at the very core of religious Jewish marriage. The acting is surprisingly good, the women dress modestly, are tastefully submissive while remaining very feminine. The men are men I am familiar with, sensitive, supportive, very observant of Jewish Law, and again very modest in terms of their interactions with their women friends. Much of the story appeals to me because I know and understand religious men and women like these, and the local scenery I know very well. In this series, the single women and men are older than is common in the Jewish religious community, that is, they are approaching thirty and have not yet found the love of their lives. This means that they are getting sort of desperate, after all, in this community by the time a woman or man is twenty eight, they have been married for seven or eight years and have several children. The characters are very likable, and they are all quite attractive physically and socially, which would normally lead me to wonder how they avoided marriage and family for so long. But that is the point, and these actors do an excellent job portraying the pathos, the longing, and the real pain that older unmarried Israeli Jewish religious men and women feel.
