Israel Story, an Israeli podcast inspired by THIS AMERICAN LIFE, is coming back with a special Yom Ha’Atzmaut, or Israeli Independence Day live show called “Melting Pot!”

When David Ben-Gurion envisioned what Israel could become, he thought of a “melting pot” – a country where Jews of all kinds, religious and secular, eastern and western, would come together and form a new, uniquely Israeli, identity. Less than seven decades later, Israel’s President, Reuven Rivlin, famously divided the population into four discrete “tribes” – secular, religious, ultra-orthodox and Arabs. In an unforgettable blend of storytelling, live music and dazzling visuals, we set out to discover how, and whether, Ben-Gurion’s dream became Rivlin’s reality. Searching for Rivlin’s archetypes, what we found, instead, was a mixture of traditions, backgrounds and beliefs. So come find out what ever happened to that tantalizingly simple (and simultaneously endlessly complicated) idea of an Israeli “melting pot.”

This exciting event is brought to you by Beth David Congregation in partnership with the Alper JCC.

Please join us at Beth David on Saturday, May 6 at 8pm. Open bar and free childcare available!
