HaMisrad (המשרד, "The Office") is a version of The Office, a 2001-2003 British and American Sitcom. HaMisrad is a mockumentary set in a branch of the fictional "Paper Office" supplies company, in the industrial city of Yehud. Like the original series and many of its spinoffs, HaMisrad lampooned office life, as well as gender and ethnic relations. In the case of HaMisrad, the office and warehouse include native-born secular Jews, Arabs, Orthodox Jews, and Russian and Ethiopian immigrants.
