Tel Aviv Review impresario Gilad Halpern, Allison Kaplan Sommer and Noah Efron discuss discuss three topics of incomparable importance and end with an anecdote about something in Israel that made them smile this week.

From COVID Heroes to COVID Zeros
How’d Israel go from being COVID heroes to COVID zeros?

Tamar in Tehran
A twenty-something, computer-hacker genius, Mossad spy goes native in Iran: that’s the plot of Israel’s newest mega-hit TV series. But what’s it tell us about how Israelis see Persian politics and culture?

Be Still, Beinart
Journalist and public intellectual Peter Beinart says goodbye to the “Two State Solution” for Israel and Palestine. Is he the harbinger, as he writes, of “a new phase of Jewish history”?

Gilad Tells All
For our most unreasonably generous Patreon supporters, in our extra-special, special extra segment, we make the very most out of having Gilad on the show, and ask him about his doctoral research into the history behind The Palestine Post, an English-language daily established in 1932, which later in 1950 became The Jerusalem Post.

All that and Lihi Admon (ve-Levavot ha-Kusamak)

Lihi Admon, or Lihi ve-Levavot ha-Kusamak:

  • Hakol Histanah – הכל השתנה
  • Straight Midai סטרייט מדי
  • Lefarek לפרק
  • Zeh Mah She-Holekh ha-Yom זה מה שהולך היום
