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

Going to the Polls!
Prime Minister Bennett decides to throw in the towel and take the country to new elections. What does it say about what was, what is, and what will be?

Not Going to the Poles!
Foreign Minister (and soon-to-be replacement Prime Minister) Yair Lapid decides to cancel all high-school trips to concentration camps in Poland. Would we be better off rethinking entirely the way we think about Holocaust education?

How Do These Elections Meet Us?
For our most unreasonably generous Patreon supporters, in our extra-special, special extra discussion: Does the prospect of new elections inspire anxiety, hope, or maybe just boredom?

All this and Idan Rafael Haviv!
