Shtisel is an Israeli television drama series about a fictional Jewish family living in Geula, Jerusalem. Created and written by Ori Elon and Yehonatan Indursky, the series is considered innovative for its treatment of an irregular group of ultra-Orthodox Jews by depicting them as "ordinary" people. It follows the lives of Shulem Shtisel (Dov Glickman), the Shtisel patriarch and a rabbi at the local yeshiva, as well as those of the other members of his family as they grapple with the challenges of meaning, loss, love and redemption. The series is available on Netflix.
