Israel Story, or ‘Sipur Israeli,’ was born as a late-night project in 2011 at the hands of childhood friends Mishy Harman, Yochai Maital, Shai Satran, and Ro’ee Gilron. Their hope was to step outside of their social bubbles and explore the diversity of Israel. By 2014, Israel Story launched its English podcast. The focus of the English podcast was the same. The Israel people loved, as well as the Israel people hated, was – largely speaking – an imaginary place. Israel Story on the other hand, tells stories of the ‘real’ Israel; to showcase a different, more nuanced, and more diverse, Israel.

As soon as the war started on October 7th, Israel Story halted regular production and devoted all operational resources to sharing voices and testimonies to try to paint a picture of life in Israel during these trying times.

Join us with Mishy Harman as we learn about the power of stories from Israel as created by Israel Story. Mishy’s session will be current and provide us with examples of real stories from Israel.
