02. Crossing the Green Line, Part 1: Israeli
In our second episode, the first of a two-part series, Skyler interrogates the question of "Israeliness." How is the identity shaped by the land, by immigration, by political boundaries and borders, and by war? We speak with Yariv Ben-Eliezer, the grandson of Israel's founding father, David Ben-Gurion, about what he remembers from his years growing up with the young state. Yoav Koko tells the story of his Iraqi grandfather's unwilling immigration to Israel. Annika Hernroth-Rothstein talks about the meaning of Israel from a religious perspective. Yvonne Saba picks apart the difficulties of growing up between identities as an Israeli-Arab.
