In our last episode, "Achi" (my brother), we told the tale of two siblings and their unusual life together. And today, we're sharing a little companion bonus track, in which senior producer Yochai Maital talks to his older sister Temira Finesilver about their very different lifestyles.
Short: “Achoti”

With the kind of storytelling we do, most of our interviews end up on the proverbial “editing room floor.” And we’re often sorry they do, since we’d like you to hear them too. So today, in what constitutes a new experiment for us, we bring you a lightly edited version of an interview we recorded several years back. It’s not an episode, and not even a story. It is, instead, a conversation.

Yochai Maital and his sister, Temira Finesilver, grew up in the same home. But they chose very different routes in life – religiously, politically, geographically. And, in Temira’s backyard in Bnei Dekalim, surrounded by chirping birds and gorgeous vistas, they sat down to chat about deep disagreements, unconditional love, and the unbreakable bond of family.


The end song, “Shevet Achim Va’Achayot” (‘A Tribe of Brothers and Sisters’) was a special project by Galgalatz. It was written by Doron Medalie, composed by Idan Raichel, produced by Tomer Biran and features many leading Israeli artists.
