Julia Haart Unconventional Journey: Julia Haart, the dazzling star of “My Unorthodox Life,” reveals her hidden origins to explain how she grew up in the Orthodox Jewish.
Haart, 52, revealed that she breastfed her sister and oldest daughter. Strangely, her youngest brother is only a few months younger than her oldest daughter, who is elegantly in her thirties.
Haart said this on “Not Skinny But Not Fat” with a cheeky grin and aggressive tone, shocking listeners. She told a riddle about her odd infant care: “Want to hear a real mind—k? “I nursed my brother.” “Mom remarked, ‘Oh, you’re breastfeeding your daughter. Also, take him. I had to look after my brother and child. Out of my thoughts.” In passing, Haart added, “I don’t think he remembers.”
Haart went deeper and made a time-traveling comparison during this stunning revelation. She stated Orthodox Jewish society was like living in the 1800s when privileged people had wet nurses. Haart wondered, “Wet nurses were common two or three hundred years ago. With money, you didn’t nurse your child. My old home was there. I lived in the 19th century. I often say I can travel back in time. To comprehend my childhood, go back to the 1800s. Lived like the 18th century.”
Haart’s story extends beyond parenting with a startling twist. She quit the New York Haredi community at 42 in 2013. This decision changed her life. It drove her to escape a forced marriage at 19. Batsheva, Miriam, Shlomo, and Aron were her children with him.
Haart’s departure from Orthodox Judaism was a self-discovery shift. He was told, “I’ve silently questioned Orthodox Judaism my whole life. But they convinced me I was sick because I wouldn’t say I liked the system. Haart wasn’t aware of her problem until her 23-year-old daughter Miriam, five, started asking questions. She recognized her problem was the system that held her down. She thought about this and remarked, “No one could convince me she was wrong when she started asking questions. Because she was five, the reality personality stated. They said I was wrong because I questioned, but when she did, I knew it was the system. The system’s broken.” Haart’s journey from orthodoxy to liberation is a timeless tale of self-discovery and emancipation.
