What does it feel like to put yourself out there, to leave everything you know, and to join a completely new community? Join us for an insightful conversation between Matt Adler, the author of the book "More Than Just Hummus: A Gay Jew Discovers Israel in Arabic" and with Yuval David- Actor, Host, Filmmaker, Activist.
