Defining Your Own Path with Hen Mazzig
Hen Mazzig embodies many identities; he is an Israeli writer and educator, the son of Amazigh and Iraqi refugees, co-founder of the Tel Aviv Institute, and much more. As a digital influencer and Senior Fellow at the Tel Aviv Institute, Hen advocates for Jewish people, the LGBTQ+ community, and other minorities around the world. Hen joins Ilana in this episode, sharing how his upbringing and military service motivated him to create change on a broad scale. As Jews of Color, Hen and Ilana also discuss the breadth and diversity of their community and how such terms can resonate across cultural experience.
