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

What Was That?
Trump will soon be the 45th ex-President of the United States. Did his turbulent four years in office change Israel in ways that will last?

New Left?
Aging lions of the old Left say the only way the Left will survive is if it leaves Zionism out of party politics. Do they have a point?

The Yair Netanyahu Show
The Twitter-pugilist son of the prime minister, Yair Netanyahu, starts a podcast interviewing right-wing populist leaders and pretenders around the world, trying to create an international coalition of My-Country-First nationalists. We listened and survived to tell the tale!

All that and songs from poems by Natan Zach, the great poet who died this week, and about whom we are tumultuously ambivalent.

    Henrietta Szold and Nashashebe led an antiPartition group entitiled Ihud in 1947, but the discussion of the proposed new group did not refer to that group. It is a natural alternative and should have been recognized.
