WATCH: State of Jerusalem: The ‘Secular’ Struggle

Dear ToI Community member,

We’re thrilled to share with you the first episode of a new video series co-produced by The Times of Israel: ‘State of Jerusalem.’ As a ToI Community member, you’ll have first access to these videos before they’re released to our general readership.

About ‘State of Jerusalem‘: In Jerusalem, nothing is quite as it seems, and the complex relationships among communities can change rapidly. ‘State of Jerusalem’ is a three-part miniseries that describes the complex relationships among the diverse communities in the extraordinary city.

The first episode in the series is entitled “The ‘Secular’ Struggle” and addresses relations between the ultra-orthodox (haredi) community and the secular/liberal residents of Jerusalem. Watch it by clicking below:

This video series, originally released in Hebrew, was created by Eiv Kristal and Natan Odenheimer and co-produced with Kan (the Israeli Broadcasting Public Cooperation). It was adapted to English by The Times of Israel.

We’d love to hear your feedback on this series. To share your thoughts, please email us at

Thank you most sincerely for your support of The Times of Israel, which enables enlightening editorial projects such as ‘State of Jerusalem.’
