The “Where Would We Be Without Camil Fuchs?” Edition

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.

Ben-Gvir, Bistu Schein?
The popularity of a one time acolyte of Rabbi Meir Kahane is growing leaps and bounds. Why?

Energy Drain
Why are the leaders of Israel’s liberal-left Meretz party, dropping out like flies?

From Zion Will Come Our Salvation
Will video marriage in Utah solve Israel’s wedding woes?

No Shakes
For our most unreasonably generous Patreon supporters, in our extra-special, special extra discussion: A popular young Israeli singer does not shake President Joe Biden’s outstretched hand because she observes the prohibition against Negiah, unmarried women and men touching each other, and Israeli social media explodes. Why was this a thing?

All this and Kob, as his great, new record, Kavanot Tovot, drops!

    Thanks for the podcast, always very enjoyable (despite disagreeing with your political views haha).
    Whilst I usually enjoy the music you feature, I really loved this week’s.
    I’ve been searching, unsuccessfully, to find the album anywhere.
    Are you able to tell me where I might be able to find it?
    Many thanks and kind regards from Australia.

    Wonderful, thank you.
    Searching with Roman characters does not work.

  3. Really enjoyed the piece about the mess with Wells Fargo and Bank Hapoalim. Don is not alone in this experience and it is an important warning for many Americans living or soon to be moving to Israel. Added it to my article:
