Untold Australia: Strictly Jewish
Strictly Jewish
Season 1  |  Episode 3  |  SBS  |  April 27, 2016

Untold Australia is a three-part SBS documentary series that goes inside three very different communities which exist within unique pockets of Australia, whose presence and way of life remain widely unknown to outsiders of these close-knit cultural groups. For the first time in Australia's television history, cameras have been allowed inside the ultra-Orthodox Adass Israel Jewish community in Melbourne. Following three of the members of this reclusive sect, the documentary offers a unique insight into how this hidden subculture exists alongside Melbourne's trendy latte society, as they attempt to maintain their age-old rituals in the face of contemporary frivolities. The 2000-plus members of this virtually self-sufficient society have their own shops, schools, butcher, baker, synagogue, cemetery, and even have their own ambulance service! Filmed over the Jewish calendar year 5775*, this is a fascinating exploration
into how the conservative Adass Israel community strive to maintain
their ancient faith in a modern world. *The Jewish calendar year 5775 was from 25 September, 2014 - 13 September, 2015. Follow the conversation on twitter: #UntoldAustraliaSBS (Part 3 of 3) (From
