Israel Story’s Mishy Harman in Tidewater

by | Feb 10, 2017 | What’s Happening

Thursday, Feb. 16, 7:30 pm, Reba and Sam Sandler Family Campus

Originally inspired by This American Life, Mishy Harman, co-founder and host of the award-winning and internationally aired, Israel Story, takes a humanistic approach to story-telling. Harman portrays his version of Israel through the diversity of its people—all of whom he believes has a story to tell—good, bad, and everything in between.

Master storyteller and communicator, Harman will make his Tidewater debut as part of the Israel Today series, presented by the Community Relations Council of United Jewish Federation of Tidewater, Simon Family JCC, and community partners.

The event will also include local artists Sheena Jeffers and Jennifer Chapman, founders of the community engagement project, Story Exchange, a project where human experiences are told through art. The community is invited to participate by submitting their unique Israel Story, which will then be reviewed by local Tidewater artists. The winning entry will then be depicted via dance, cinematography, visual art, or any other artistic means, and then performed at the Sandler Family Campus.

The date of the Tidewater’s Israel Stories performance will be announced at Harman’s appearance, as well as the names and mediums of the participating artists.
