Footsteps – Leaving the Ultra-Orthodox Community

Growing Up and Leaving the Ultra-Orthodox Community – April 24th Video

Thanks to Steve Eisman and his team for the excellent discussion about Footsteps.  Footsteps is the only organization in the United States providing comprehensive services to people who have chosen to leave their ultra-Orthodox communities and begin new lives.  Our new member, Steve, who is on the Board of Directors of Footsteps, and Mindi Yeger, one of the members of the organization who transitioned from the ultra -Orthodox community to the mainstream society, gave us invaluable insight into challenges of the transition and the range of services and resources that Footsteps provides to support the former ultra -Orthodox Jews in their work to define their own identities.   For more information about Footsteps go to:
