Times of Israel Ops & Blogs editor Miriam Herschlag, 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.

Growing Pains
Israel’s new government says, let “the market” decide who grows what where. Is it time to let the “Invisible Hand” till our soil?

Keeping Kosher
Israel’s new government says, let a thousand hekhshers (Kosher certifications) bloom. Who stands to gain and who stands to lose?

Thought for Food
Tel Aviv’s beautiful new “Culinary Institute of Israel” is attacked for cultural appropriation and “food-washing”. Is it possible to make a meal without a side of politics?

Why Is Vaccinating Kids at School Controversial?
For our most unreasonably generous Patreon supporters, in our extra-special, special extra discussion, we discuss why Israel’s Education Ministry refuses to vax kids in school. Do they have a point?

All that and the genius originality of Bar Tzabari.
