Allison, Don, and Noah discuss three topics of incomparable importance, and end with an anecdote about something in Israel that made them smile this week.

Women of the Wall
Best Western?

Textbooks

The hubbub over a new edition of an Israeli civics textbook threatens to develop into a furor. Do we really need a unified civics textbook in a disunified civil society?

 

Pinkwashing
“We’re here!, Vey iz mir!, Get used to it!”

How are we to regard the protester at the LGBTQ conference who opposed letting pro-Israel voices be heard? We may disagree with such Jewish BDSers, but don’t we share at least some common cause?
