The show features a group of four Haredi students who study at a yeshiva in Jerusalem. One of them, Gedalya, is on the straight and narrow, while the other three prefer their Talmud study with a side of hanging out in the park, shopping at the mall and general goofing off. Shababniks is a Hebrew slang word for a Haredi youth who is off the path – but not entirely. There are no tortured heroes or heartbreaking scenes in Shababniks. What you will find in Shababniks is fun, and a lot of it.
