The podcast returns by popular demand with in-depth, honest analysis of Israel’s history and current events
OpenDor Media is pleased to announce that the Unpacking Israel History podcast is back by popular demand. The first 15-episode series was extremely popular, with over sixty thousand downloads.
The podcast series is hosted by Dr. Noam Weissman, OpenDor Media’s senior vice president and head of content, and a well-known thought leader on new paradigms in Jewish education. Each week, he takes listeners behind the scenes of Israeli history and digs deep into many of the most controversial events, exploring how they are relevant today.
“I am really excited for a second season of Unpacking Israel History,” says Weissman. “Ever since the last episode of the first season dropped, our listeners have been emailing us to continue on for a second season, and I am thrilled the second season is here, which I think will be even more invigorating than the first. There is a real thirst for honest, nuanced perspectives on the story and history of Israel, and we want this generation to feel both deeply committed to the Jewish people and deeply knowledgeable about the story of the Jewish people. If we want our young people to make sense of the present, we need to ensure they have an understanding of the past.”
