Israel | Expert Panel

June 10, 2021

Today we’re diving into the paradox that is the country of Israel. In such a small nation you can be surrounded by tech entrepreneurs, holy men and women from multiple faiths, geopolitical conflict, world class nightlife, and natural wonders like the Dead Sea AND the Mediterranean Sea. 

To try to unravel some of this beautiful complexity, we have three guests on our show today. My friend and partner in the region, Yoav Gal – an expert in luxury Israel itineraries; Eyal Riess – a Rabbi in the mystical Jewish tradition of Kabbalah, and Libbi Cohen- an expert in Tel Avivian history, culture, and nightlife.

We discuss everything from Israel’s new cultural revolution, to spiritual experiences in caves, to Bauhaus architecture – and of course hummus!
