Although Ben didn’t live in a household that was as strict as Bat’s, he did grow up in the same community. He also went to an Orthodox school, but, as Bat told Hey Alma, Ben was ready to embrace a more modern lifestyle even before she was.
“He … came from a less strict background,” she shared. “He still went to yeshiva [Orthodox school] but it wasn’t as strict. I went to an ultra-religious school and he went to a more open-minded school, so he was already kind of on that page before me.”
