Who The Folk?! Haviv Rettig Gur

Normally we focus on local Jewish community members to feature on the Who The Folk?! Podcast, the opportunity to about what’s happening in Israel with Haviv Rettig Gur was an opportunity too good to pass up. Gur, who is the featured speaker at the Jewish Community Relations Council of Minnesota and the Dakotas annual event on June 2, is a veteran Israeli journalist who serves as senior analyst for The Times of Israel. He’s a frequent guest on the Call Me Back and The Times of Israel podcasts and has covered Israel’s politics and foreign policy since 2005, reported from over 20 countries, served as director of communications for the Jewish Agency for Israel, Israel’s largest NGO, and taught at prestigious premilitary academies. 

Haviv and I talk about what he’s observing in the state of mind of Israelis, how politicians in Israel and the United States are getting plenty wrong in the war, and the misconceptions many have about the war – and Israeli-Palestinian relations – on this week’s Who the Folk?! Podcast.
