In celebration of Yom Ha’atzmaut, Israel’s Independence Day, join American Jewish Committee (AJC) and Ryan Lavarnway, 15-year Major League Baseball catcher and Team Israel veteran, for a live recording of AJC’s podcast, People of the Pod. Lavarnway, in conversation with guest host AJC Atlanta Director Dov Wilker, will discuss what inspired him to play for Team Israel in the World Baseball Classic and in the Olympics, the pride he felt representing Israel on the international stage, the future of the sport in Israel, and the importance of building connections between the Jewish state and the Diaspora.

Advocacy Anywhere is a new platform that will enable you to engage with AJC’s leading expertise, content, and advocacy opportunities from wherever you are, using cutting-edge technology.
