New TV Series Features Couple Finding G-d

Israeli media is widely perceived as staunchly secular if not outright anti-religious, but a new television series depicts a couple who make tshuva – i.e., go from living a secular life to becoming religiously observant – and portrays the process in a positive and compassionate way.

The series, Mekimi, is being aired on the HOT cable television network, and is receiving quite a lot of media buzz. It is based on a bestselling autobiographical book by Noa Yaron-Dayan, who was a young media figure in the 1990s when she made tshuva.
