Much Ado About Diaspora
While Stephanie is off hanging with baby Edith, Mark and Liel are taking a serious look at the relationship between Israeli Jews and the American diaspora. Massachusetts-born-and-raised Mark digs deep into Liel’s perspectives about the United States while growing up in Israel, and how they have changed now that he’s been in America for over 20 years.
Liel speaks with Zvika Klein, an American-born Israeli journalist covering American Jewry on how he sees this very special relationship.
Finally, we hear from Yoni Rosenblatt, a doctor for Israel’s baseball team on their recent Olympic journey, and what it means for the Americans on the team to represent the Jewish state.
