Canadian-Israeli journalist, New York Times Op-Ed contributor and author Matti Friedman joins us to discuss his award-winning book Spies of No Country: Secret Lives at the Birth of Israel.
Friedman presents history critical to our understanding of Israel today, as he transports us back to a world when the nation-state was “a wish, not a fact,” sharing stories about the young Mizrahi Jews who risked their lives to become spies for a country that was yet to be born. A compelling talk for all interested in the history and politics of Israel and the Middle East.
Stephanie Butnick is deputy editor of Tablet Magazine and a host of Unorthodox, the #1 Jewish podcast on iTunes.
