An investigation into a student’s mysterious death uncovers secrets and lies in the most sacred of spaces
When the body of a student is found by the side of a reservoir, local rabbis attempt to cover up the apparent suicide to preserve the reputation of their religious school. But when a classmate of the deceased feels compelled to find out the truth, a much darker secret is revealed.
Light and Truth takes viewers deep inside the secret world of a yeshiva, an elite Orthodox boarding school devoted to producing the next generation of scholars of the Religious Zionist movement.
The series follows the lives of the yeshiva’s teachers, rabbis, students and parents through a series of twists and turns as they grapple with changing times, declining enrollment, financial hardship and soul-searing scandal.
