Welcome to the Waks Family
Running Time: 52 minutes
Cast: The Waks Family
Showtime: Monday, March 15, 2004 @ 04:50 PM
Director: Barbara Chobocky
Description: Meet one of the largest families in Australia. With 17 children to the same two parents, everyday life in the Waks household is a logistical operation of monumental proportions. Living in Melbourne''s suburbs, the family stands out in another way - it is part of an orthodox Jewish community that is largely closed off to secular life. How do the Waks cope with so many kids, and with the challenges presented by mainstream society? Why have they made these choices?
Welcome to the Waks Family is a rare invitation to step inside a family and a religious life that are extraordinary in almost every respect.
