“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 jcoh.org/unorthodox to register.

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