My guest today is Brian Slater who gave up the good life in Los Angeles to come and live in Israel and work amongst some of the poorest in society. He’s been through some very hard times but he’s resisted the temptation to return to America. Many people think Israel is a country full of rich people and are shocked to find out that the poverty level is very high. Brian runs a charity in Netanya and each week he runs a soup kitchen feeding 50 – 60 people and prepares 350 food packages that he delivers to poor families living in the city.
