You may have heard of Jenna Lewinsky, who brought her flock of Canadian Jacobs sheep to Israel back in 2016. Today, the former resident of Abbotsford, B.C., lives in Efrat—a disputed Jewish settlement on the West Bank near Bethlehem.
Despite the economic hit she’s taken from the COVID-19 pandemic, and being urged by Israeli police to move because they couldn’t ensure her safety during the current conflict, Lewinsky is staying put. On today’s show, we hear how the sheep and their Canadian keeper are riding out the outbreak of hostilities between Israel and Gaza, thanks in large part to her friendly Arab neighbours.
