YICHUD (Seclusion) - print

The Yichud Room is the place where the bride and groom go to be alone immediately following the wedding ceremony. In the case of Rachel and Chaim, who have only had a handful of chaperoned dates, this is the first time they have ever been alone together.

In another part of the synagogue, tensions rise between the groom’s older brothers, Ephraim and Menachem, rival Torah scholars who haven’t seen each other in four years. Meanwhile, the bride’s parents, Mordechai and Malka, are secretly planning to divorce after the wedding. YICHUD (Seclusion) directly confronts the tensions that exist in the Orthodox Jewish world between tradition and modernity, powerfully dramatizing issues of love, marriage, respect, sex, honour, and duty.
