This program talks about the acceptance of the Hebrew language in Israel. When the lyrics of the Italian opera Tosca by Puccini was sung in Hebrew at the Ohel Shem Theatre in Tel Aviv members of the audience were interviewed. The use of Hebrew as an everyday language in the young country of Israel was then discussed.
