When David Ben Gurion envisioned what Israel could be, he thought of diverse cultures, traditions, and backgrounds coming together to form a unique Israeli identity. With their unforgettable blend of storytelling, live music, and dazzling visuals, the Israel Story team sets out to discover how Ben Gurion’s dream became Israel’s modern reality. They ask, in their humanizing manner, whatever happened to that tantalizingly simple, yet intensely complicated notion of an Israeli “melting pot”?
