Joel Chasnoff uses comedy and characters to create a safe space for healthy discussion about Israel. In his interactive program, he portrays four characters that each have a unique view on Zionism that the audience members are welcome to challenge. His characters include:
Avner Mizrachi: A Sabra who thinks Zionism means living in Israel -- and nothing else.
Aric Fox: An AIPAC volunteer who believes Zionism means ensuring Israel's military security.
Jared Stein: An American college student who protests the Occupation and speaks out against Israel.
Rabbi Daniel Lefkowich: A pulpit rabbi in the Diaspora who sermonizes that Israel is part of a larger puzzle called meaningful Jewish life.
