Jews You Should Know

Oct 29, 2019


Dina Kraft has spent a lifetime in journalism, working for some of the most esteemed names in the industry. Her career pinnacle, though, may be the podcast she hosts under the auspices of Hadassah, The Women’s Zionist Organization of America, Inc., called The Branch. Fusing her passion for Israel, shared society, reporting, and audio, this year-old podcast brings the sounds and stories of mutual Jewish-Arab engagement in Israel to the listener in a riveting manner. Her goal is to bring hope and new, multi-dimensional perspectives to a profoundly fraught situation...and to educate and entertain in the process!
