COMING SOON - 2023!
Based on Avi’s unique role, experiences, and insights, the series will highlight Avi’s perspective on the issue of Jerusalem, the
geopolitical fabric of the city, the relationship between Jerusalem
and the broader Middle East.
As you may know, as part of his professional career, Avi was the Deputy and Senior Advisor on Arab Affairs to two mayors of Jerusalem in the late 1980s and 1990s - the legendary Teddy Kollek and Ehud Olmert. Avi held these unique and challenging positions at a time when Jerusalem was in the center of the storm of the Intifada. And Avi was in the eye of that storm.
Based on the two pillars of ITME – political non-partisan information and critical thinking, the series will also illustrate that constructive and productive bridges can be built in extremely conflictual situations.
IZZY was founded by Josh Hoffman and launched in August 2020.
