Israel Story Live at 92Y

Join us as we experience an evening of magical live radio with the creators of the award-winning radio show and podcast, “Israel Story” — known as “the Israeli ‘This American Life.’” With its engaging blend of live storytelling, music and dynamic multimedia, “Israel Story Live” provides a unique entry into the lives of Israelis that is sophisticated, nuanced, funny, and moving. We will gather after the show at a reception with the cast. This program is a part of Central’s celebration of Israel’s 71st year of independence. Tickets are $18. We expect this event to sell out, so be sure to purchase tickets now.


Show Description:

The Wall: A Look at the Barriers That Separate Us and Those That Bring Us Together

Everywhere we turn these days, it seems “the wall” is staring back at us. It protects and alienates; keeps people in and out; and can—as we all have seen—bring mighty governments to a standstill. With unusually splendid storytelling, live music, and stunning visuals, the “Israel Story” team will redefine the ubiquitous “W word.”

Following the event, join Rabbis Peter Rubinstein, Nicole Auerbach, Lori Koffman and Mo Salth for a free reception complete with Israeli wine and light snacks at the 92Y! All are welcome.
