Ruhama teaches at a religious girls school, while Tikva sells wigs. In their "free" time they are absorbed in filmmaking, a rare calling for Israeli Haredi (ultra-Orthodox) women. Working as a screenwriter/producer and actress respectively, they are loyal to both their religious beliefs and their creative muses.
