Here at Israel Story, we love doing live tours across the United States. This time we’re coming to Pittsburgh, New York, Indianapolis, Seattle and Miami with a special Yom Ha’Atzmaut, or Israeli Independence day, live show – and also with yet another new special Yom Ha’Shoa, or Holocaust Remembrance Day, show only in Amherst.
When David Ben-Gurion envisioned what Israel could become, he thought of a “melting pot” – a country where Jews of all kinds, religious and secular, eastern and western, would come together and form a new, uniquely Israeli, identity. Less than seven decades later, Israel’s President, Reuven Rivlin, famously divided the population into four discrete “tribes” – secular, religious, ultra-orthodox and Arabs. In an unforgettable blend of storytelling, live music and dazzling visuals, we set out to discover how, and whether, Ben-Gurion’s dream became Rivlin’s reality. Searching for Rivlin’s archetypes, what we found, instead, was a mixture of traditions, backgrounds and beliefs. So come find out what ever happened to that tantalizingly simple (and simultaneously endlessly complicated) idea of an Israeli “melting pot.”
