Originally from Leeds, England, Menachem and Yehudit Vinograd met at an afternoon Hebrew class when they were 14. A few years later they were newlyweds living on a kibbutz.

Today they are known in the Israeli Anglo-American community as the founders and producers of the successful and beloved Jacob's Ladder Folk Festival, which began in 1978 and takes place twice a year in northern Israel.

They join Rogel Alpher in the studio to speak about their life's work and share memories from past festivals. They also end up sharing a small but significant anecdote about the time they encountered Bob Dylan on a kibbutz in Israel.
