Image: Anika Molnar / NetflixUnorthodoxis a gripping miniseries about a young Esty Shapiro (Shira Haas), a young, recently married woman who escapes her ultra-Orthodox Hasidic Jewish community in Brooklyn to find her mother in Berlin and start a new life. It is one of the most engrossing series I’ve ever seen, engulfing viewers in a community that many may be cursorily aware of but have no in-depth knowledge about. As Esty arrives in Berlin, confused yet free, trying to find her place and a place to stay, the family she left behind is frantic. Her husband is distraught and begins searching for Esty while she gets her first tastes of independence outside her insular Satmar community. As the story unfolds, more details of Esty’s past are revealed and the possibility of a future at a musical conservatory hangs precariously in front of her. Esty’s search for something more in life and her family’s search for her intertwine into an intense crescendo of family, community, and independence.
Part of what makesUnorthodoxextraordinary is its roots in reality. It’s inspired by a memoir by Deborah Feldman, a woman who fled the Satmar community. Many of the actors grew up speaking Yiddish. It pulls on knowledge from people who have been in or around these communities to help with sets, speech, attire, and moments as authentic as possible. Parts of the show feel like stepping into a period piece, but it’s the reality of modern ultra-Orthodox Hasidic Jewish communities.Read more: Mashable »

FDA authorizes Pfizer vaccine for 12-15-year-oldsPfizer announced in late March that its clinical trials showed the vaccine was safe and 100% effective in children ages 12-15, similar to the 95% efficacy among adult clinical trial participants. The big question about the vaccines is not their effects, but how long does it last in the long term? Or is it just temporary relief before another wave. These are questions that are never asked. Now before anyone jumps down my throat. I'm not anti-vax. Just don't lie to me Thank God my. Daughter has been waiting to be able to get vaccinated. I'm sure the morons will chime in soon. How's the smallpox? The measles? The mumps? The polio? Where'd they go? And how? Hopefully...it’s safe! We don’t wanna see that in one-two years recipients are starting to have weird complications from it...like Dr. Salk’s lovely polio vaccine did to hundreds and thousands of patients!!😳🤔🤔🤔
FDA Approves Pfizer Vaccine For 12- To 15-Year-Old ChildrenThe COVID-19 vaccine is the first to be authorized for kids under age 16 in the U.S. Please help me get my first vaccine shot. I am 35 years old. I stay in Zirakpur, Punjab, India. No vaccines for kids! Take D3, Zinc, VitC, Elderberry- build strong immune system! That will block Covid! Vaccines will need boosters in 6 mos as they are not effective to mutating virus! The shots will never end.(side effects are dangerous)
