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.

What Now?

The Strange Death & Curious Rebirth of the Israeli Left?
Who killed Israel’s Left?

The Airport Gates Are (Wide) Open
For our most unreasonably generous Patreon supporters, in our extra-special, special extra discussion, after a week of vigorous reporting by Allison about how reopening the airport to tourists has been pretty worryingly botched, we talk about how we feel about the gates of the country finally being thrown wide to let in curious well-wishers with handsome disposable incomes, from all around the world.

All that and Cohen!
