Julia Fisher talks to Israel Pochtar – Whilst in the ancient Biblical city of Ashdod recently, I met Israel Pochtar. Born into a Jewish family in the Crimea, he came to Israel with his wife soon after they were married. At first he worked in construction by day and in his spare time, as a street evangelist based in Tel Aviv. So, I asked him, why did he move to Ashdod?
