An explanation of Jewish culture
This documentary marks the Jewish festival of Yom Kippur by travelling to Manchester to meet a community of rabbis, their wives and families to appreciate the dedication and hard work required by the Jewish faith.
The series reveals the practices that go unobserved by the modern, secular world and helps explain why Jewish males are circumcised, why orthodox wives wear hairpieces and what makes an oven kosher and how to deal with non Jewish businesses.
