There’s a lot of news, and a lot of tension, concerning the Orthodox and secular Jews in Israel. It’s not often that you get to see the lighter side of things.

In a new video, which promotes “Israeli Shabbat,” when religious Israeli families invite secular families over for Shabbat dinner, we see the lives and stereotypes of two very different families. While the stereotypes could be used as mean mocking (the religious wife cleans the house while the secular children think that everything is boring), it instead is used to show that these two families, while religiously diverse, have a lot in common. Both families are loving, tight-knit, and, in both families, the women are the head of the house.
