Join us for this special discussion with Sara Yael Hirshhorn, author of "City on a Hilltop: American Jews and the Israeli Settler Movement." Read more

Navigating Israel with "Chutzpah and High Heels"

Ask her about adapting to Israeli culture, her crash course in Israel's religious pluralism, defining "chutzpah" and anything else! Read more
