This month we’re taking a Jewish lens to the classic fall staple, the Pumpkin Spice Latte; we’re checking in on the status of the relationship of Diaspora Jews and Israel with the new Chairman of the Jewish Agency for Israel Isaac Herzog; and we’re sharing the surprising story of how the famous French mime Marcel Marceau saved Jewish children from the Nazis.
