Plot Summary


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.
