  • Up Close: Jon Fine and Lynn Davidman

    by TJC Staff

    This week on Up Close, what does it mean to be set free from the strictures of one’s childhood, and find a calling somewhere else?

    In the 1980s, many youths across America found meaning in music that was loud, hard and fast — and a sense of community, as well. Inc. Magazine Executive Editor Jon Fine discusses his path in “Your Band Sucks: What I Learned at Indie Rock’s Revolution (But Can No Longer Hear).”

    And then, we’ve heard many individual stories of people who grew up in the Ultra-Orthodox community and eventually left, but what’s the larger story that they tell us, when combined together? Kansas University Distinguished Professor of Jewish Studies Lynn Davidman researches that in “Becoming Unorthodox: Stories of Ex-Hasidic Jews.”

    Watch the complete episode of Up Close on TJC on-demand on cable in the TJC Original Series/Interviews category.
