Oprah Visits Religious Jewish Families White & Black

Shalom Miriam,
Thanks for posting something on Oprah's 2 part TV program.I was only able to watch the few bits that were posted on her web site but that gave me a very good idea of the scope of her program.

I've been watching Oprah's TV program on reruns from her last season,for a couple of months and it's been a revelation!I had never watched her show in the 25 years she'd been on the air because I refused to watch ANY talk programs!

But I'm enjoying her programs even when they deal with some terrible issues.

This program on Chassidim seems to have been very well received.I also followed the story and the comments on The Huffington Post,and most of the comments were positive to the point that she had exposed the reader to something new and opened their eyes to a lifestyle they had no idea existed.

I even read some positive comments by Muslims,one hijab wearing woman said that she felt something in common with these modest Chassidic women!

That is so beautiful!

it was kinda strange watching the show because all the stuff the Chassidic lady was talking about, we already knew. so it was sort of entertaining and seeing it with new (Oprah) eyes.

I hope it is a positive, effective, thing.
