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.

Party Time!
Five new center-left parties launched last week, and there are more on the way this week. Why are lefty parties sprouting like mushrooms after a spring rain?

Going for Netanyahu in Droves?
Prime Minister Netanyahu hints that he’s eager for an Islamicist party to join his coalition after the elections. Is this a turning-point in the history of Israeli politics?

In Living Color
An amateur historian and artist colorizes dozens of photos taken by a Wehrmacht officer of Jews in the Warsaw Ghetto, in order to show a brighter side of day-to-day life in the shadow of the Holocaust. Is that what we want? What we need?

Should Burg Receive the Gift of No Longer Being Chosen?
For our most unreasonably generous Patreon supporters, in our extra-special, special extra discussion, we discuss former Speaker-of-the-Knesset Avrum Burg’s petition of the Supreme Court to remove from official documents any mention that his “nationality” is Jewish. This, in protest of the Nation-State Law. Should Burg receive the gift of no longer being Chosen?

All that and the new wave drive of Tal Label!
