Celebrating Co-existence in Haifa

The northern Israeli city of Haifa is a model of integration and tolerance. Every year, thousands of revelers descend on the city to celebrate the highly anticipated, Festival of Festivals. This 25-year old festivals takes place every December and is a celebration of the country’s three main religions – Judaism, Islam and Christianity. Haifa is festooned with twinkling Christmas lights, chanukiot for Chanukah and Islamic symbols. It is a rare opportunity to be exposed to and enjoy the timeless traditions of these three religions. Rolene Marks filed this report for Channel News Asia:

Talking Tachlis: A conversation with Natan Sharansky and Prof.Rivka Lazovsky

I am delighted to introduce the latest episode of Talking Tachlis which features a conversation between two great organisations. World WIZO Executive Member: Public Diplomacy & Hasbara, Rolene Marks and I sat down with Chairman of the Executive for the Jewish Agency for Israel and human rights icon, Natan Sharansky for a conversation about our organizations, defining anti-Semitism through “the 3-d lens”, special friendships with Nelson Mandela and a whole lot more.

This was a real highlight for me and very humbling to sit down with a modern Zionist hero.

Talking Tachlis: Yom Hashoa edition: Interview with Rabbi Lau

World WIZO commemorates Yom Hashoa with a special edition of Talking Tachlis. In this episode, we have a conversation with World WIZO Chairperson, Prof. Rivka Lazovsky and our special guest, Rabbi Israel Meir Lau, former Ashkenazi Chief Rabbi and child survivor of Buchenwald Concentration camp.

This was a profoundly emotional interview for me (we had to stop filming so I could dry my tears and pull myself together)  and such an honour to meet Rabbi Lau, a real treasure.

During this emotional and moving interview, you will the laughter of Israeli children and we could not help but be moved by the triumphant sounds of happy children, free to play and laugh in their schoolyard after hearing about the darkest chapter in our history.

The interview is in Hebrew with English subtitles.

May the memories of all who perished be blessed.
