A glimpse into the stories behind the headlines.

Reflections from the Israeli Homefront 2023

A glimpse into the stories behind the headlines.

A glimpse into the stories behind the headlines. As Israel deals with its blackest day in terms of loss of civilian lives and a blow to its sense of security; and as it calls up an unprecedented number of reservists; what has been the reaction of the man on the street and how is the ordinary individual coping?

We will share some stories of shock and despair and some stories of heroism – all stories displaying the Israeli spirit in its multifaceted ways..

Step into a solemn exploration during our upcoming virtual talk. As Israel confronts one of its most sorrow-laden days, marked by the loss of innocent lives and a profound shattering of its security, together with an unprecedented mobilization of reservists, we will plumb the depths of the collective response from ordinary citizens.

Join us for an introspective experience where we’ll recount stories of deep shock and despair, as well as narratives of remarkable heroism, all of which poignantly reflect the intricate tapestry of the Israeli spirit in these trying times.
