Israel Story

The Jewish Federation of Greater Pittsburgh

Thursday, April 277PM


Live multi-media performance by Israel Story, an Israeli radio broadcast, inspired by This American Life that shares stories about Israel and its diversity and culture, based on interviews of everyday Israelis from all walks of life.

When David Ben Gurion envisioned what Israel could be, he thought of diverse cultures, traditions, and backgrounds coming together to form a unique Israeli identity. With their unforgettable blend of storytelling, live music, and dazzling visuals, the Israel Story team sets out to discover how Ben Gurion’s dream became Israel’s modern reality. They ask, in their humanizing manner, whatever happened to that tantalizingly simple, yet intensely complicated notion of an Israeli “melting pot”?
