Jewish Center of the Hamptons Hosts ‘Unorthodox’ Discussions

An image from the Netflix film "Unorthodox."

“Unorthodox,” Netflix’s hit series, follows the story of Esty, a 19-year-old Hasidic Jewish woman living in Williamsburg, Brooklyn. She flees a suffocating arranged marriage and escapes to Berlin where she meets and bonds with a group of student musicians. Then her past life comes calling.

Watch “Unorthodox” and then join the Jewish Center of the Hamptons for a virtual discussion on the show. Sessions meet Tuesdays at 5 p.m. from January 12 through February 2, and each one will focus on a different episode of the four-part series.

“Unorthodox,” the first Netflix series to be primarily in Yiddish, is inspired by Deborah Feldman’s 2012 autobiography “Unorthodox: The Scandalous Rejection of My Hasidic Roots.”

This event will be held on Zoom. Visit to register.

The Jewish Center of the Hamptons is located at 44 Woods Lane in East Hampton.
