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

Vax & Figures
What’s the link between who Israelis vote for and whether, when, and how we get vaxxed and boostered?

The Cost of Freedom
Gilad Shalit was freed from Hamas captivity in Gaza exactly ten years ago. Was the deal that brought him home a good one?

Once They Wrote Love Songs for Tel Aviv
Has Tel Aviv jumped the shark?

What to Make of L’Affaire de Rooney?
For our most unreasonably generous Patreon supporters, in our extra-special, special extra discussion, we wonder what we ought to make of l’Affaire de Rooney?

All that and new music of Israel’s most outre rapper, Hadar Farjun!
