Episode 29:

PEOPLE ARE PEOPLE

THE DIVERSE RELIGIOUS AND ETHNIC POPULATIONS OF THE MIDDLE EAST

Thursday, September 17 1PM ET

This episode launches our new series focusing on the Religious and Ethnic Diversity in the Middle East. We are going to set the building blocks that shaped this region. We will also give an overview of the episodes to come – on each, we plan to dive deeper into the stories of these unique communities and what better way than through “Story Telling”. Get ready to meet and connect to the people, their culture, struggles and dreams.

Yuval Ben Ami, a travel writer, tour guide, multidisciplinary artist and one of the best story tellers we know, will be joining us on this fascinating journey.
