Allison Kaplan Sommer, Don Futterman, Sally Abed and Noah Efron talk about Israel’s elections this week:
What should we make of the surprising success and kingmaker role of the Islamicist Ra’am party?
The Kahanists in the Knesset? The better-than-anyone-predicted showing of Benny Gantz and the Blue & White party? The relative failure of the right-winger who wanted to replace Netanyahu, Gideon Sa’ar and Naftali Bennett? The relative success of the Labor Party and liberal-left Meretz? The stalwart centrist Yair Lapid? What’s it all say about the state of our collective soul? What’s it all augur for the future?
For our most unreasonably generous Patreon supporters, in our extra-special, special extra discussion, we – in a fit of self-disclosure – spill about who we voted for, and why.
All that and two of Israel’s greatest young opera singers, Shani Oshri & Noam Lowenstein, singing roots music in Ladino (see their beautiful online show next Monday)!
