The “Taking Stock” Edition

Allison Kaplan Sommer, 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.

A Year of Abraham Accords
A year ago this week, ambassadors from the UAE and Bahrain celebrated with then-President Donald Trump and then-Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, the launch of the Abraham Accords. With Trump and Netanyahu booted out of office in the interim, what should we make of the accords now?

Escape
After a week glued-to-the-screen, following a manhunt after six escaped Palestinian prisoners, we ask: What just happened?

White-ish Feminism
Some Israeli feminists say they’ve had enough of “White(ish) Feminism.” Do they have a point?

What Yom Kippur Means to Us
For our most unreasonably generous Patreon supporters, in our extra-special, special extra discussion, we discuss what this days-of-awe-holiday-season means to us, each from our own perspective.

All that and Sima Noon!

    Very wonderful, very insightful. “The `Deeds Done´ Edition” was really a great show, that one truly deserves an applause. I love it when we can all come together. Also, I wanted to leave a comment on the latest episode, and I suppose that I appreciate you, in all means, and in this scenario particularly as a secular, traditionally Jewish professor (is my estimation off-the- mark?). However, I just do not see this motive as being able to tie together the rebel Arabs and wacky feminists. I would not even use the term “occupation”. But it is excellent that there is at least a venue to explore each others´ thoughts.
    Thank you, once again, for producing in my opinion some of the highest quality I have listened to this week. Shalom!
