IsraelCast Episode 127
Many young Jews and Zionists today are grappling with their identity. What does it mean to be Jew? What does it mean to be a Zionist? How do those identities intersect with other parts of who I am? How do I deal with people online telling me my Judaism is a problem? Amy Albertson, a professional Social Media Coach and Jewish activist, has dealt with these questions her whole life as a Chinese-American-Jewish woman. Host Steven Shalowitz sits down with Amy to talk about Zionism and how her experiences with antisemitism, the greater Jewish community, and Israel led her to further explore her Jewish identity and become an activist for Jewish pride around the world.
