The Top 100 People Positively Influencing Jewish Life, 2019


Yehonatan Indursky and Ori Elon

Screenwriters and filmmakers

Two of Israel’s hottest television writers, Yehonatan Indursky and Ori Elon are the creative brains behind the hit Netflix series Shtisel, the story of an Orthodox Jewish family living in Jerusalem. Widely praised for its depiction of a group of observant Jews in the Geula neighborhood as regular people who face the common challenges of life, a third season of Shtisel was announced in May 2019. Speaking to the New Yorke magazine about the hit series earlier this year, Indursky emphasized the importance of moving beyond stereotypes. “This outlook that Haredim live in a kind of ghetto and are just waiting for the day they can escape—it’s an occupation fantasy for secular people,” he said.
