Allison Kaplan Sommer, 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.

Elections, Infections & Abjections
Is the collapse of Israel’s government a good thing, in a They Shoot Horses, Don’t They? sort of way?

Vaccination Lamentation
Why are so many of Israel’s anti-vaxxers leftists?

New Jewess
Is Gal Gadot the “New Jewess”?

“Urban Freedom”
For our most unreasonably generous Patreon supporters, in our extra-special, special extra discussion, we discuss a new survey of “Urban Freedom” by the separation-of-church-and-state-advocacy group Yisrael Hofshit, about which Allison wrote in Haaretz.
