A few days before the beginning of Operation Protective Edge, we sat down in Tel Aviv with the big winner of MasterChef, Tom Franz, and his wife, Dana.We had not had a surreal meeting like this in a long time. On the one hand, as the rockets from Gaza flew incessantly at the Center, the sirens went off nonstop and a lot of heroic work on the part of the soldiers running the Iron Dome missile defense system was necessary. On the other hand, our interviewees told us a Jewish-Israeli story that was poignant and optimistic.
