Times of Israel Ops & Blogs Editor Miriam Herschlag, Wunderkind Ohad Zeltzer-Zubida and Noah Efron discuss three topics of incomparable importance and end with an anecdote about something in Israel that made them smile this week.

—How Do You Solve a Problem Like Rav Kanievsky?—

Tens of thousands of ultra-Orthodox kids are going each day to schools that are required by law to be closed, in maybe the biggest act of civil disobedience in Israel’s history. What’s the government to do?

—Skin in the Game?—

Race, ethnicity, peoplehood, nationality, religion: How do these things fit together in today’s Israel?

—Anything But Apathy—

Can a $678 embroidered hoodie with dropped shoulders and panelled long sleeves help bring peace to Israelis and Palestinians?

—Is There Something Unique About Antisemitism on Social Media?—

For our most unreasonably generous Patreon supporters, in our extra-special, special extra discussion, we talk about an essay in the forward by Joel Swanson called, “Facebook has banned Holocaust denial. But what about other genocides?”, and ask more generally, is there something unique and sui generis about antisemitism on social media.

All that and songs from Shlomi Shabat and family and friends!
