Description

Menahem Lang leads a journey into the heart of Bnei Brak, world capital of the Haredim – the ultra-Orthodox Jews. Menahem is known for his kindness, commitment to Talmud school and his golden voice, which made him a renowned performer of liturgical chants. However at the age of 20 he broke with this pious life and moved to the free-spirited Tel Aviv, leaving everything but the weight of one secret behind — for years, he was raped by members of the community that worshipped him. Menahem opens the door to this forbidden world.
