What is it like reporting on war in your own country?  Join Times of Israel journalist Jessica Steinberg as she delves into how Israelis are finding a sense of normalcy amidst recent challenges, including the aftermath of the October 7 and the Iranian attack. Steinberg sheds light on the current landscape in Israel, where families navigate grief and stress stemming from the frontline sacrifices and losses endured during the October 7 attacks and ongoing conflict. Discover how Israelis draw strength, find purpose, and persevere through adversity in their quest for healing and resilience.

After the war broke out on October 7, Steinberg pivoted from covering arts and culture to leading the Times of Israel's reporting on those held hostage, interviewing families, and writing the stories of those missing and taken captive. She speaks daily with those who survived and with the family members and supporters of those held hostage, crafting a more comprehensive portrait of the people and the tragic circumstances in which they find themselves.
