Storyline

The series tells the story of Nadav Feldman , a young social worker , who discovers that he is adopted and finds himself in the depths of his biological father's family, Baruch Asulin, a leader of an organized crime syndicate in Israel known as "Ha-Borer"(The Arbitrator), due to his activities as an arbitrator in disputes in the underworld. The series focuses on the combination of dramatic stretches , the conflict between the norms of society including crime, especially norms and codes of conduct of the underworld. Among other highlights of the series, in a satirical way, the contrast between certain behaviors of some of the heroes of the series (as a demonstration of piety) and other behaviors (such as the blatant disregard for human life).

Israeli sopranos - the tv show that shaped tv shows in Israel.
7 February 2019 | by The Fresh PrinceSee all my reviews

Television's golden age started out when The Sopranos first burst in to our home screens. Everyone was immediately hooked since no one have even seen anything as good as the classic mafia show. That was in 1999, well, here in the holly land things started out a little late. Yes, today we have big budget shows like 'Fauda' on netlix and "Very important man", but if i could think of one tv show that really made the difference in shaping our local television - it's "The Arbitrator". It tell's the story of Nadav Feldman, a social worker with lots of values and principles, One day his father pass away because of a heart attack and than later his mother tells him the big untold secret that evenone around him already knew including his little sister - he is actually adopted. He decides to find out who his real family is and then after a research he recieves the shocking news - he is the son of Baruh Asulin, a head of a dangerous crime family. He manages to meet his real father face to face in his private home, and for the first time in his life he is being exposed to the local mafia world. Baruh Asulin aka 'The arbitrator' is judging between criminals who have disputes about money but can't take it to the court because of the nature of their work, and during the show Baruh is facing his biggest challange yet - his worst enemy Yigal 'the nazi' is being released after serving 25 years in a prison in Germany and he is looking for revenge. Will Nadav help his father, who's everything he dislikes about society? Will the social worker take the crown and become his father's successor? And how would this impact Baruh's other son, a dangerous hot tempred yet romantic son - Avi 'The spleen' Asulin, who has a different plan for his father's empire? An astonishing big budget tv show that manages to mix classic mafia stories with a charming Israeli sense of humor. Very recommended! Watch it!
