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.
