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.

paris peace conference
Peace in Paris or conciliation in Cairo?

We discuss the weird-ass peace retreat in Paris, without Israelis or Palestinians, and the Egyptian-Saudi peace initiative: So much peace-talk, so little time?

 

divorce
Tots & moms & fallacies of feminism

There is a controversial push to repeal a 54-year-old law that places tots with moms in divorce cases. We discuss the split among feminists about whether, in a sexist society, sometimes a sexist law is a necessary evil.

 

Torah
The Good (for-what-exactly?) Book

In honor of Shavuot, the holiday that marks the giving of Torah at Sinai, we discuss whether Holy Writ should play any role in Israel’s public sphere, and if so, what that role should be.
