The Believer

The Believer (2001)

1 corrected entry

Corrected entry: Danny Balint spends all his formative years in a yeshiva. The friends he meets from the past each wear a yarmulke, a sign of being an Orthodox Jew. Yet when he goes to the synagogue after being invited, there are women wearing "talliths" (or talithim in Hebrew) as well as the mixing of men and women in the congegation. This would never happen in an Orthodox synagogue.

Correction: All Jews, whether orthodox, reform or conservative, have the choice to wear yamulkes. Because the friends were wearing yamulkes does NOT automatically mean that they are orthodox Jews. It is perfectly viable that they wore yamulkes as non-orthodox jews, and therefore attended a non-orthodox synagogue.
