Israel’s PR Sucks! – A Hebrew In The Heartland [audio]

Not wanting to be offensive, but, also wanting the Zionist movement to be effective Virag offers very valuable constructive criticism. She asks why the Hasbara message is totally aimed at one very small segment of society, namely American Jews? There are many other audiences who need to be addressed and spoken with. She herself has been spending a lot of time at UN headquarters in NYC and engaging with women from Muslim countries who have never heard directly from a pro-Israel speaker.

A non-Jewish Girl's Obsession with Israel

Not totally out of the usual, Israel has been on an extreme roller coaster ride over the past two weeks. Starting with an Islamic terror attack on the Temple Mount that left two police officers dead and another wounded. The huge out-pour of love and appreciation from Israel’s general public to the tiny Druze minority who have tied their destiny with Israel and the Jewish people.

From Ballerina to Entrepreneur: A Conversation with MissCareer/Less Founder Virág Gulyás

At a recent School of Shine event in Tel Aviv, I had the pleasure of meeting Virág Gulyás, a Hungarian expat living in Belgium, and a ballerina-turned-entrepreneur. After giving up an international career in ballet, Virág decided to search for something to do that truly made her happy. The search was long and challenging and led to the founding of MissCareer/Less, an e-zine that empowers women to embrace change.
