Allison Kaplan Sommer, Noah Efron, and Don Futterman discuss three topics of incomparable importance and end with an anecdote about something in Israel that made them smile this week.
It’s Not Over ‘til the Yellow Bird Sings
The “Canary Mission” is a website clearinghouse of information about American students, professors and organizations who are critical of Israel. What impact does its “this-will-go-on-your-permanent-record” trolling of Jewish American (and other) critics of Israel have on all of us?
Marks and Surplus Values
If “Jewish values” are used to justify both right-wing and left-wing positions, there is any value to them at all? Is it time to stick a fork in “Jewish Values”?
Schools of De-Zion
There’s an amazing resurrection in America of hip Yiddishism and Bundism and all sorts of spectacular Jewish cultural creativity, the roots of which reach back to sources that have little to do with Israel and Zionism. Should we celebrate or mourn this creative de-Zionising?
