“Does it matter that there is a separate Jewish people? And what is their mission? That should be a question that every young Jewish person is asking, and I think a trip [to the developing world] is an important opportunity to raise that question…” -Rabbi Zvi Hirschfield
Feeling like strangers or outsiders isn’t a new experience for the Jewish people. But when it comes to spending time in the developing world, navigating what makes us different as Jews – our religious or cultural practices, our identity and values – can bring with it unique challenges.
What are these challenges – and what are the opportunities – of living Jewishly while serving in the developing world? Sarah Mulhern and Rabbi Zvi Hirschfield unpack these questions together on our fifth and final episode of the Global Torah podcast series.
