—Right Thinking Men—

Gideon is on the outs with Bibi, Naftali says he won’t hang with Yair, Avigdor says Arye, Moshe & Yaakov can f*ck off, Bibi says Bezalel’s great, but Itamar is only o.k. The dynamics of the leaders of Israel’s right-wing parties have the subtle complexity of a middle school pool party. What does this augur for Israel’s future?

—Courting Change—

The Supreme Courts decides that the state must recognize as Jews (for the arcane purposes of the Law of Return) folks converted by Reform and Conservative rabbis in Israel, and it’s like the whole country just stepped on the 3rd rail. Why is this controversial and what’s it all mean?

—The People of the Dynamic Meeting Space—

Is there a place for books in Israeli libraries in 2021?

—Two Shots Plus a Week—

For our most unreasonably generous Patreon supporters, in our extra-special, special extra segment, we take out our “Green Passports” and discuss what life is like for those of us who have two shots plus a week.

All that and Yael Mess, who you’re gonna be hearing a lot of pretty soon!
