At the beginning of the episode we break down the new anti-semitism numbers and discuss the increasing repression against Muslim communities. We then introduce the JNF’s mysterious new Israel Advocacy HQ and bid farewell to the Jewish Tribune. Finally, we talk about Bill Marantz’s racist column in the Jewish Post and News, and then try to wrap our heads around why Mexican workers were paid to dress up as Chassids in NY.
