“Od Nipagesh,” a TV series that takes you along the journey of five individuals who want to mend the broken relationship they have with a close family member that was originally torn because the other became religious.
- It’s such a good illustration of Sinat Chinam / Ahavat Chinam (Baseless Hatred & Unconditional Love)
- The show was well designed and orchestrated! I enjoyed the quality and execution.
- It’s the perfect example of how one person can take charge and change the entire relationship just by doing self-work.
- You see how committed they are? I like that they don’t whitewash the process. There are going to be ups and downs and unless you are committed to the result, you will give up along the way!
- I can totally see myself playing ‘mentor’ in a reality show like this one, when they do it about marriage. After all, this is what I do every day with women who want to be happy in their marriage! It’s a journey that is very satisfying to witness.
I don’t usually take the time to sit and watch shows. It took a lot of convincing from my sister, my friend, and my mother to get me to watch “Od Nipagesh.” Once I decided this was appropriate for Tisha B’Av, for its serious and thought-provoking feel, I watched 4 episodes on my phone while sitting on the floor, took a break to be involved with live Zoom shiurim geared to Tisha B’Av, and later, 4 more episodes on the computer with my kids.
There are still two episodes left to the ending, So I might have a part two to this post, but I felt compelled to share with you my thoughts so far.
If you are on the fence about watching “Od Nipagesh” on YouTube, Go for it! It was nice, respectful to both sides, and well made. Enjoy 🙂
