As the Jewish state reaches its half century, Ferry Biederman looks at what has been achieved over the past 50 years and looks ahead to what many continue to view as a difficult and turbulent future. Ferry goes to two cities – the Jewish Ein Hod and its Palestinian twin Ein Hawd – and compares the stories, histories and current lives of their inhabitants.
