In this week’s podcast, host Josh Nathan-Kazis talks with Forward opinion editor Gal Beckerman and Forward Fellow Naomi Zeveloff about the Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions vote at an iconic New York food co-op and Peter Beinart’s new book in which he argues for “Zionist BDS.” Then staff writer Paul Berger drops by to discuss a small war that’s brewing between Israeli and American matzo manufacturers.
