You met her as Esty in the break-out Netflix series Unorthodox, or perhaps in her bestselling memoir of the same title. But Deborah Feldman has built a full life as a writer since she escaped from the Satmar community in Brooklyn. Join Deborah to hear about how she’s navigated the “outside” world and redefined her sense of self and her relationship to Judaism. She will be joined by Shira Haas, who portrayed Esty in Unorthodox, in a conversation moderated by Abigail Pogrebin.
