CSP 4-Part Series - Jewish Readings of Modern Movies and TV
4 of 4: Stranger Things – The Upside-down and the Sitra Achra
With Rabbi Dr. Raphael Zarum, live from the U.K.
Dedicated in honor of Rabbi Charlie Savenor

With copious references to 80s music, cinema and culture, Netflix’s ‘Stranger Things’ is a horror-genred nostalgia-fest that speaks to adults and teens alike. But its religious undertones are under-appreciated. Shadowy fiends, demonic possession and the Other Side (Sitra Achra) feature in the Talmud, Zohar and kabbalistic works. That’s a code red.
