Bloody Israelis

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Are Israelis rude? Are they too loud? Too chutzpadic? This session is a comic performance portraying an immigration experience of different generations from Israel to the Australian diaspora. We will examine the causes and sources of Israeli mentality as well as the attitude of local Jewish community and Australian society in general towards Israelis. In our presentation we will challenge you to consider the cultural differences in a new light. (A special thank you to family members, colleagues and friends who have kindly agreed to participate in this program and shared their stories with us.)
