Since the 1960's Luis Fantuzzi has been touring the world to perform and experience different cultures. Now he is here in Israel for the Rainbow Gathering and to film a documentary. Tune in and hear stories about how he met Rabbi Shlomo Carlebach in Central Park, how he made the cover of Newsweek and what he thinks about Israel and cultural diversity.
Plus, what food do Americans in Israel love most? Apparently, Thai food. Find out the story in an interview with downtown Jerusalem's HollyWok, formerly Hollywood Burgers, Israel's only Hollywood themed Asian restaurant.
Also, this weekend was the Ethiopian Jewish holiday of Sigd. What are the roots of this ancient celebration? Find out with interviews with local Israeli-Jewish Ethiopian musicians.
