Allison Kaplan Sommer, Don Futterman and Noah Efron discuss three topics of incomparable importance and end with an anecdote about something in Israel that made them smile this week.

Lion in Winter
The number of Israelis who think Benjamin Netanyahu is most fit to be Prime Minister has tumbled over the past few weeks. Why and what’s it mean about the upcoming elections?

Us & Them
A study finds Israeli teens don’t trust teens who are different than they are. Why? What can be done?

Raffish Women
Is there maybe a special, nuclear-grade misogyny reserved for tough, brash, in-your-face, Mizrahi women, who are among our most successful (and most disparaged) leaders today?

Whoa, This Is Terrible! (Or, Yay This Is Great?)
For our most unreasonably generous Patreon supporters, in our extra-special, special extra segment, we talk about some spectacular new investigative reporting by Allison and Judy Maltz: “How Christian Evangelical Money and Biblical Prophecy Are Driving Immigration to Israel.”

All that and the inspiring Shai Meshulam Project!
