The “There Will Be Blood” Edition

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

The Torch Has Been Passed
Yair Lapid, once a weight-lifting, party-going, celebrity hunk, is sworn in as Israel’s 14th Prime Minister. What a long strange trip it’s been.

There Will Be Blood
Why is menstruation trending in Israel?

Dealing With Jewish Thugs
For our most unreasonably generous Patreon supporters, in our extra-special, special extra discussion: Haredi thugs break up a Bat Mitzvah and two Bar Mitzvah’s at the Wall in the most awful way. How do we cope with a thing like that?

All this and Amir Lev!

    Hey! I must say, I am really enjoying my first time listening to this podcast. I have been listening to Streetwise Hebrew for some time, first the free version and then the Hebrew Plus version all in Hebrew. So after listening to Guy today, I thought heck! I might as well listen to this podcast. After all, Israel has a new prime minister for now, etc. I found it all so interesting and I look forward to listening to this more frequently.
    Sincerely, Lisa Dilles

      Delighted that you’ve listened, Lisa! We also love Guy’s show, and any friend of his is a friend of ours. We will always be delighted to hear anything you have to say about any of the things we discuss!
