Would you move around the world to be with your girlfriend? Should marriage be in the cards? Is it make it or break it time? Or is it time to move on? In the eleventh installment of our interview series Ordinary People, Extraordinary Mansy, we interview our special guest Eli. In his early twenties, he moved halfway around the world to be with his girlfriend - only to discover she had gotten back together with her ex-boyfriend. Finding himself at a pivotal point in his life, he had to decide many things - and ask himself many questions. To complicate matters, Eli was an Orthodox Jew. What criticism and shame would he face from his family? His community? His friends? Not only did he have the courage to move around the world, he left his religion. Ready to face the uncertain road ahead, it's a fascinating story of identity, bravery and redemption. You won't want to miss it.
