When Raz Tel-Chai describes his childhood, you know right away that something was wrong. His illicit behavior started at a tender age, his belligerence was a constant companion, and his runaway status began at 13. In and out of juvenile detention centers, and runaway homes, Raz learned to trust no one and stand up for himself in a fight. A snowstorm from the heavens sent Raz to the home of Uncle Bernie and Aunt Hilda, foster parents who lovingly helped troubled Jewish children. Raz was the most surprised of all when he actually listened to authority, actually spent weeks reading books on Zionism and Israel, and actually loved the Shabbat table. His struggle was not over yet, and Raz tells a colorful tale of fighting and of rehabilitation. Now living in Israel, clean and free, Raz works with troubled youth in the Negev desert. Tune in to hear the roller-coaster-ride of Raz's life story. This is not a show for kids.
