JNF-USA Reading Series: Israel: A Simple Guide to the Most Misunderstood Country on Earth

Join Jewish National Fund-USA IsraelCast host Steven Shalowitz and author Noa Tishby for a live Q&A session about her book, Israel: A Simple Guide to the Most Misunderstood Country on Earth. While many seem to have opinions about Israel, few know all the facts. Noa Tishby fills in the information gap by offering a fresh, all-encompassing view and bringing her straight-shooting, engaging, and slightly irreverent voice to the subject — creating an accessible and dynamic portrait of a tiny country of outsized relevance. Available for purchase on Amazon. Purchasing the book prior to the event is not required, but recommended.
