The Yichud Room is the place where the bride & groom go to be alone together immediately following the wedding ceremony. In the case of Rachel & Chaim, whove only had a handful of chaperoned dates, this is the first time they have ever been alone together. YICHUD (Seclusion) directly confronts the tensions that exist in the Orthodox Jewish world between tradition and modernity, powerfully dramatizing issues of love, sex, marriage, faith, religion, respect, honour, and duty. The setting is specifically Jewish; the story is universal and life-affirming. (
