Jews You Should Know

Oct 22, 2018


Israeli society comprises many different constituencies, and the complexities that emerge are legion. Religion and state issues, conflicting values around the army and the Zionist project in general. All of this and more often silos the population, and fractures a nation that could benefit immensely from solidarity.

Since the 1970s Gesher has stepped into this breach, creating initiatives and programs that promote dialogue, understanding and unique solutions to Israel's thorniest internal challenges. Its long-serving Chairman of the Board, Daniel Goldman, has the passion and optimism needed to drive the organization forward. Hear his story of professional achievement and dedication to Jewish unity in this episode.
