Srugim, a drama series follows the lives of young modern-Orthodox Jerusalemites contending with life and love. This show has broken down borders in Israeli society by depicting this sub-culture for a first time. The series depicted the lives of five national religious single men and women, in their 30s, who reside in Jerusalem. The name of the series is a reference to the crocheted skullcaps worn by men of that denomination. Srugim, which dealt with controversial issues in the Religious Zionist society in Israel, caused a public uproar within that sector. It enjoyed high ratings, from both the religious and non-religious sects in Israel,as well as with American Jews. Many of the American Jews compared the issues of the characters in the show to those of the Upper West Side. The show won five Israeli Academy of Film and Television Awards.
