Host Daniel Donskoy travels to different cities to meet exciting Jewish guests. Together they discuss and philosophize about the meaning of being Jewish. What is life like for Jews in London, Buenos Aires, Tel Aviv, and Istanbul?
In the evening, before hosting his guests, Daniel Donskoy explores the cities he visits: covered in oil from head to toe for a Turkish oil wrestling match in Istanbul, visiting Pride in Tel Aviv, or as the “Leader” on a double-decker bus in London. It is all about Jewish identities and stories, where you often don’t know whether to laugh or cry.
Always playful and charming, Donskoy provides his various guests for the late-night show with home-cooked food and engaging questions. From an author, comedian, all the way to a rabbi, they talk about the reality of their Jewish lives. With such an intimate atmosphere, they open up right away in front of the camera.
