The struggle between the world of Hasidic Jews in the UK and those who decide to leave.

20161206

What happens when individuals try to leave Britain's Hasidic Jewish community? Strictly-orthodox Jews live by 19th-century traditions in a modern world. But there are some who struggle with this way of life. In this documentary, two people reveal what happened to them once they made the decision to leave - a decision that meant letting go of everything they knew. This is a story about sacrifice and tradition, and a clash between two worlds.

Produced and presented by Camila Ruz and Charlotte Pritchard.
