After visiting Hasidic communities in Brooklyn, N.Y., for a two-part episode on "Oprah's Next Chapter," Oprah Winfrey sat down for an exclusive interview with Rabbi Motti Seligson for Chabad.org's video site, Jewish.TV, to talk about her reflections on the visit and the community.
“Oprah’s Next Chapter” will air the two-part episode on the Hasidic Jews on Sunday, Feb. 12 (9-10 p.m. ET/PT) and Monday, Feb. 13 (10-11 p.m. ET/PT) on OWN: Oprah Winfrey Network.
Oprah visited to the Hasidic Jewish communities of Borough Park and Crown Heights for unprecedented access inside one of America's most tight-knit and mysterious cultures, where she learns about the daily life and their intense spiritual devotion, including raising their children with no TV, movies, Internet or video games. She sat down with a family of 12 as part of her visit, enjoyed a traditional meal and met one of the few black Hasidic Jewish families in the country. Then, Oprah conducted a first-ever, no-holds-barred interview with four Hasidic mothers and wives, and got a rare tour of a ritual, spiritual bath known as a mikveh.
