The segment, set to air next week on Winfrey's new show "Oprah's Next Chapter, " featured a discussion with Hassidic women about the ultra Orthodox community's lifestyle as well as a trip to a mikveh (Jewish ritual bath).

"There’s more Hassidic Jew in me than I knew!" Winfrey said, marking her experience a success.
