Listener feedback

“I first discovered Unpacked through the Unpacking Israeli History podcast, which immediately stood out to me as uniquely honest and even-handed in its coverage of Israel’s early and recent history. I have since discovered an entire universe of incredible Unpacked content – from their videos to written articles to additional podcasts. I have come to cherish so many things about Unpacked’s work – from the care with which the team approaches challenging and sensitive topics, to their perfect blend of education and entertainment. Most importantly, Unpacked has offered me empowerment – empowerment to engage more deeply with my own Jewish identity, and to appreciate the rich historical and cultural context that comes with it.”
