The Jewish Story Interlude: Tisha B’Av 5780 and the Disengagement

Posted by Mike Feuer on July 28, 2020
Topics: The Jewish Story, The 17th of Tammuz and The 9 Days, Tisha B'av

Israel’s disengagement from the Gaza Strip was fifteen years ago, but to me it feels like yesterday. In this interlude, author Daniella Levy joins me to discuss the fiction work which she wrote to engage this complex event. Along the way we speak about Tisha B’Av, what it means to be an immigrant and how one can tell a true story from multiple perspectives.
