Grad Pride: Ori Isaac ’17, Encouraging Civil Discourse

Ori Isaac’17, a graduate of Shalem’s first class, is the latest subject to be featured in “Grad Pride,” a video series that follows our alumni as they contribute to their country and people through influential professions in a range of fields.
