The insular Hassidic sect in Borough Park Brooklyn maintains its own set of conservative religious guidelines, including those dictating that women are never to come in physical contact with non-familial men. But in medical emergencies the men of Hatzolah Emergency Medical Service care for them. Ruchie Freier, an attorney and mother of six, and her crew of revolutionary Hassidic women are determined to change all this by creating a volunteer ambulance corps composed exclusively of women.
