Eve talks with Dr. Elana Heideman of The Israel Forever Foundation about our triumphs and our tragedies and how to balance them in the narrative.  How does an expert in the Holocaust come to head an organization devoted to positive stories on Israel and Jewish identity?  It’s increasingly difficult for some Diaspora Jews to connect with Israel in an era where Israel impacts the world in so many positive ways.   We must work ever harder to stay relevant to our co-religonists,  which seems counter-intuitive even while taking politics into account.  Why is there a tendency to focus on the negative spin and what does that portend for the future?
