In this week’s podcast, host Josh Nathan-Kazis is joined by opinion editor Gal Beckerman, Forward fellow Naomi Zeveloff and staff writer Nathan Guttman to discuss the rent protests that are shaking Israel and the role these protest might play in Israeli politics. Then the group is joined by Daniel Septimus, the CEO and publisher of MyJewishLearning.com who recently wrote an op-ed arguing against the “peoplehood agenda,” which aims to cultivate a “special connection” between the Jewish people. Lastly, the group discuss the curious role of Israel in the ongoing race for Anthony Weiner’s old congressional seat.
