Take from us our tired, our poor, our huddled masses yearning to breathe free
Israel contemplates paying $8,500 a head for African asylum seekers to leave for Rwanda. Is this solving a thorny problem, or indulging an ugly xenophobia?

Losing our Religion?
Has Israel’s left “forgotten what it means to be Jews,” as the new head of the Labor Party says?

The End of the Zooish People?

Music: Music by Avior Malasa, off his new, eponymous debut album.
