“It’s not like there’s a Latino voice, or Latino voices and Jewish voices. You have in front of you people who are the combination of the Jewish with the Latino and the Latin American. So it’s not like we put on a hat, ‘and now we’re speaking Latino,’ and then we put on another hat, ‘and now we’re speaking Jewish.’ . . . That orchestration is done by bridges: By being bridges and by building bridges.”
