“Soon By You,” an award winning web series about the dating lives of six young Orthodox Jews, uses comedy to take an honest look at the Modern Orthodox singles community in Manhattan. Are the producers trying to provide entertainment for Orthodox people, or to give an authentic look at the Orthodox world for those who are not a part of it? Are they attempting to entertain, or to educate, as well? And are those double-entendres intentional? (If you don’t know what I mean, you should watch the show again.) Join me and Leah Gottfried, Danny Hoffman, and Jessica Schechter, the producers, writers, and stars of the show, for a fun and interesting conversation about Hollywood’s failure to create rounded Orthodox characters, and what they’re trying to do to change that.
