This episode of Up Close examines the move away from Jewish Orthodoxy.
Steven I. Weiss interviews author Leah Vincent about her new memoir, Cut Me Loose: Sin and Salvation After My Ultra-Orthodox Girlhood, which details her often-harrowing experiences leaving the yeshivish Orthodox community and settling into secular life in New York as a young adult.
We also take a close look at the ideas of Rabbi Mordecai Kaplan, the founder of Reconstructionist Judaism, with the author of The Radical American Judaism of Mordecai M. Kaplan, Mel Scult.
