Israel has played a central role in American-Jewish life for quite some time. Eric Axelman and Sam Eilertsen, co-directors of a new documentary film entitled Israelism, join Dan and Lex for a conversation about their film, which explores a movement of young American Jews fighting to redefine Judaism’s relationship to Israel-Palestine.

It also won the Audience Award at the 2023 San Francisco Jewish Film Festival, the oldest and largest Jewish film festival in the world.
