Dr. Zhenia Fleisher (yes, mother of ) tells Eve personal stories of her childhood in the USSR, her aliya, marriage, love of the Sinai desert and gradual deep attachment to her faith in addition to her heritage.  A brilliant chemist (that will be another show or two) and long-time Zionist from when and where pro-Israel activism wasn’t so simple (to say the least), this cultured and gracious lady gives us a glimpse into the impact of the 6 Day War from behind the Iron Curtain.  Come to think of it, Yishai is the son of. Listen in. You’ll be left wanting more, too.
