The Tel Aviv Review

This week's show is a special one, because we only have one guest. But it's a very special guest: Dr Fania Oz-Salzberger, a historian at Haifa University and a leading public intellectual in Israel.

She talks about the book Jews and Words, which she co-authored with her father Amos Oz, the famous Israeli novelist. It explores the importance of words to Jews over the generations.
