Srugim (literally, “knitted” or “crocheted”) is an Israeli television drama which originally aired on Yes TV between 2008 and 2012. It was directed by Eliezer “Laizy” Shapiro, who co-created it with Hava Divon. The series depicted the lives of five national religious single men and women who reside in Jerusalem; the title 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 and won five Israeli Academy of Film and Television Awards.
