This week, host Josh Nathan-Kazis is joined by Forward editor Jane Eisner and Forward Fellow Naomi Zeveloff to discuss how Republicans are using Israel as a wedge issue in 2012 elections. Then, Josh talks with Yossi Beilin, the left-wing former Knesset member and author of a new book, Birthright: The True Story, which details his struggles with the Jewish establishment while he developed and advocated for the Taglit-Birthright program. Finally, the Forward’s artist in residence, Eli Valley , calls in to discuss his latest comic which confronts the Forward’s coverage of Amy Winehouse’s death and his own reading of her life.
