Shekinah: The Intimate Life of Hasidic Women (3-Minute Inspirational Video)

Looks like Montreal is bursting with awe-inspiring Chassidic women– from newly elected city-council member and Vizhnitzer Chassid Mindy Pollak (the first North-American Chassidic woman to ever be elected to public office), and now this…a Montreal-made documentary about Chassidic women and their wow-worthy views on womanhood and sexuality. VERY inspirational and empowering.


  1. beautifully done..wanted it to go on and on…at the beginning of the film, was that shliach, Ruvi New from Boca Raton, anyone?

      Hi Chana– that’s Rabbi New from the Montreal Torah Center 🙂 Nice to see some of my chevrah in this video!

  2. I wish we could generalise and say that this is representative of all chassidish women but I think it’s misleading: it’s very clearly CHABAD, who are so far ahead and revolutionary in these areas as far as chassidut is concernced (in my not so educated opinion) in their openness and ability to communicate. Also in their dress and attitude towards women and femininity and beauty and fashion ….. it follows that they are more open about linking sensuality with spirituality.
    Kol Hakavod. I also didn’t want it to end.

  3. was this the entire video/documentary or a blurb/as for a longer video?

  4. I would like to repeat what YL had posted and put more emphasis on the point. The video starts off with “shtraimel” Yiden and then goes into the Lubavitch community. “Never the twain shall meet”.
