Israel at War: Podcasts
Israel can exist in our lives in a myriad of ways. Each podcast in this compilation represents a piece of The iCenter team’s daily lives and rituals. They enable listeners to be in “conversation” with current events, trending topics, popular music, and more. Since the start of the war, each of these podcasts has made shifts (or started anew) to reflect and incorporate the current reality in Israel and abroad.
