Based on the premise that one of the most serious fractures in Israeli society is the one between the religious world and the secular one, this book investigates the more conservative side of Judaism. Thorough and moving, this study focuses on the female factor within the ultraorthodox Jewish community. Four real women are portrayed who, for various reasons, have entered or have fled from a world that is still dictated by the Torah in the 21st century.

Cuatro mujeres reales son retratadas quienes, por diferentes motivos, han entrado o han huido de un mundo que aún se guía por la Torá en el siglo XXI.
