SPECIAL SPEAKER: DAVID ZE'EV, "THE LIGHTER SIDE OF ISRAEL" Join us on Shabbat, June 9 at 7:05 p.m. in the Main Sanctuary, for an inspiring speech given by world-renowned podcaster and former Israeli English-Language Radio Newscast Anchor David Ze'ev. He will share his remarkable stories about life in Israel—real "only-in-Israel" stories that have taken place on commuter busses and on the streets of Jerusalem and Tel Aviv—that you'll never read about in the news. Over 35 years in Israeli Public Radio, David has interviewed every Prime Minister since Shamir, and has become an informal "goodwill ambassador" who has consulted with foreign ministers and even with a President of the United States. His stories have inspired Jews to visit Israel and even to make Aliyah.
