Allison Kaplan Sommer, Ohad Zeltzer-Zubida, Sally Abed and Noah Efron discuss three topics of incomparable importance and end with an anecdote about something in Israel that made them smile this week.

Likud, 2021: What’s Left of the Right?
Some longtime Likudniks lament that the party ain’t what it used to be. If that’s true, then what is it now?

Carrots & Sticks
Is there a fair way to cajole people to vaccinate? Fining ’em? Keeping ’em from working? Banning them from basketball arenas? Public shaming?

Green, Yes. New, Sure. But Is It a Deal?
Is this the time for a “New Green Deal for Israel”?

The Weirdest Political Ads of the Week (Part 2)

All that and Irit Dekel!
