Gil Hoffman speaks about the beauty of Israel being both a democracy and a Jewish state, which he says means everyone has a voice and everyone has an opinion. He takes you behind the scenes in his coverage of the Shabbat railway repair work crisis that led to the resignation of Israel’s health minister and the nuances within the ultra-Orthodox world.

In the second half of the show, Gil speaks about the divides between Israelis and the Jewish world and how they can be overcome. He also goes into the race for chairman of the Jewish agency and what each potential candidate brings to the table.
