The Therapy (HaTipul)

The Therapy

Conversion therapy is revealed from within for the first time. Lev, a 54-year-old divorced Orthodox Jew, attends conversion therapy, hoping to be remarried to a woman. At the same time, Ben, 23-year-old social work student seven years into conversion therapy, starts having doubts about the practice. In the Jewish Orthodox world, where he grew up, he was taught homosexuality is a fault that one can ‘cure’, but upon entering university, he was surprised to discover conversion therapy is considered harmful and dangerous. Ben sets out on a research quest to discover the truth about conversion therapy but learns that the way out is harder and more winding than he originally thought.
