In this week’s podcast, host Josh Nathan-Kazis is joined by Forward fellows Ezra Glinter and Naomi Zeveloff to discuss our list of the best in Jewish arts and culture in 2011. Then Naomi explains a bizarre discussion between the celebrity-minded orthodox lawyer Shmuley Boteach and shamed lobbyist Jack Abramoff, who is trying to rehabilitate his image after his jail-stint. Finally, the Forward’s assistant managing editor, Larry Cohler-Esses, drops by to discuss why J Street is still having a hard time getting through the front door at mainstream Jewish institutions all over the country.
