“You aren’t forced to get married but we are so brainwashed we think it’s what we want,” he says. When I had my kids I started brainwashing them from six months old. Their minds are so fresh, they absorb everything.” Today the aspiring actor, who lives in New York, home to the largest Hasidic community in the world, has more mundane matters on his mind, like the pile of unpaid bills on the table of the single room in Manhattan where he lives, the endless phone calls from debt collectors and the fact that in a few days he will be homeless again.After years of doubts, Twersky left his community in 2008 and became one of a growing number of so-called Hasidic rebels in New York.His decision lost him his job and saw him cast out by family and friends, leaving him to fend for himself in one of the most expensive, overcrowded cities on Earth.
