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.

The Vested Quest of the Oppressed
Some Israelis watch yellow-vested Parisian protestors burn cars and break windows and thing, “We’d like in on that action.” But will Israel’s yellow-vest demonstrations produce any positive change?

The Left is from Mars, the Right is from Venus
A new study shows that Israeli leftists are from Mars, and right-wingers from Venus. They don’t even agree on what the word ‘democracy’ means. What does that augur for the future of the country?

The Grinch and the Jewish Question
A big honkin’ Christmas tree goes up in the Ashdod Mall. Is it good to have more pluribus in our unam?

Extra Segment
As per the suggestion of longtime friend of the show, Janet Hiller, we discuss “the role of the first family of Israel – how it has become presidential in nature and potentially dynastic.”

Sweatshop Boys, Haifa’s punkest punks, in honor of their new record, “Two Men.”

    I am listening to the Grinch Episode, just FYI America has become more and more Christian , the Christian majority is trying to legislate laws which fall under Christian Values. We Jews are not seen as valued for ourselves but for the fact that Christ was Jewish and they want to preserve Jerusalem for him and them.. pS love the podcast!
