Author Jessica Fishman

Thursday, March 16, 7 pm at Beth Jacob


After moving to Israel, overcoming the notorious Israeli bureaucracy, making embarrassing mistakes while learning Hebrew, serving in an army “run by teenagers”, and serial dating egotistical Israelis, wide-eyed, midwestern Jessica Fishman finally thought that she had made it. Until everything came crashing down.

Jessica Fishman grew up at Beth Jacob, and moved to Israel after graduating from Indiana University with a degree in Journalism and Business. She has written a number of articles about Israel, and her story has been featured in leading Israeli and Jewish media. She was inspired to write Chutzpah and High Heels: The Search for Love and Identity in the Holy Land after a life-changing event in Israel. Her goals are to share her experience and inspire social change.
