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

My War & Yours (& Ours)
Can a Palestinian Israeli (like Sally) and a Jewish, Zionist Israeli (like Noah) find even a common language and common facts to talk about last week’s rockets-and-bombs in and out of Gaza?

My Atrocity & Yours (& Ours)

All this and Banot ha-Tom!
