Allison Kaplan Sommer, Noah Efron, and Times of Israel Ops & Blogs Editor Miriam Herschlag discuss three topics of incomparable importance and end with an anecdote about something in Israel that made them smile this week.

Likud Renewed, Dude!
The Likud primaries are here! We wonder what composite portrait they paint of the heart, soul and physiognomy of the party.

Being Black
The rage and heartache of Ethiopian-Israelis came front and center as they protest police brutality and so much else. How are we – three white folks – ought to understand their pain and rage?

Our World According to Conan
How do we make sense of Conan O’Brien’s attempt to make sense of Israel?

Extra Segment
We discuss the huge, building-sized billboards of PM Netanyahu shaking hands with US President Donald Trump under the slogan, “Netanyahu: In a League of his Own.” Why? Why? WHY?

Half Ayala Ingedashet and half Orit Tashoma (on the occasion of the big demonstration):

  • Basar Va Dam (Flesh and Blood)
  • La-Nua (Moving)
  • Tov Li Achshav (All’s Good Now)
  • Bo Elay (Come to Me)

    Do you have a link to the music service you spoke about in this episode–שירלי? I can’t find it in Google play…

    Love the show by the way. You all are my alternative reality. I made Aliyah in 1991, met my future husband, and we went back and forth between Israel and the US before settling in Boston in 2002. You’re my “what if”… So thanks!
