Eytan Schwartz became a household name in 2005, when he won the popular reality TV show "The Ambassador." He spent the next year in the United States on a public diplomacy mission, primarily on university campuses. Today, Schwartz is Tel Aviv Mayor Ron Huldai's adviser for international affairs. In this episode of Journeys, he recounts amusing anecdotes of his speaking engagements in the U.S., which sometimes took him to the remotest of locales. He also explains how Tel Aviv's reputation as an international center for industrial innovation and creativity, which attracts many educated and professional young Jews from Western countries, should be bolstered.
