IsraelCast Episode 88
Courage. Gratitude. Connection. These words are bantered around often enough, but it is rare to find someone with so many stories of simple acts, making connections, and saying thank you. Tune in to this week’s episode of IsraelCast as host Steven Shalowitz sits with Israel advocate and former diplomat Shahar Azani, who relays stories from Kenya, Israel, Yemen, and the United States – and who reminds us of the value and importance of finding commonalities with others and appreciating the simple things in life.

Azani was formerly Executive Director for StandWithUs Northeast Region and held the position of Consul for Media Affairs and Spokesperson at the Consulate General of Israel in New York.
