SHTETL ON THE SHORTWAVE

Amr and Lucy

Amr & Lucy

Dear radio lovers, click play on the icon below to stream this episode of Shtetl on the Shortwave.

 

In these post election days I thought it would be good to hear from two quiet people. Not politicians. Just a regular Palestinian and Israeli. Hear why Amr from Nablus is backpacking around the West Bank. Find out what a sulha is. Hang out with Lucy and see what it means for her to be Jewish in the land of Israel.

As always, lots of music for your listening pleasure.
Peace and love from the Middle East,
Shtetl

Music on this episode by Kid Loco, Krista Muir, Boogie Balagan, Epichorus, Edward Sharpe & the Magnetic Fields.
