Your episode of TREYF for the 20th of Adar II 5776 features an interview with Sigal Samuel, the Forward’s Opinion Editor. We talked with her about Mizrahi-Palestinian Solidarity, and the popularity of intersectionality in the North American Jewish press.
On Episode 16, we also cleared the air on statements made about Jewish hockey players, condemned the Canadian Jewish News’ questionable news coverage, and talked about grogger’s (yet again). We spoke with +972 journalist Mairav Zonszein about what got lost in the conversations about Trump’s speech at the AIPAC conference. Shkoyakhs were given to BDS activists in Oshawa, Ontario, and to a robot who infiltrated an Open Hillel event. Finally, our recommendation goes to the Independent Jewish Voices’ Statement of Support for the Blacks Students Network at McGill University.
If you like this episode, listen to Episode 11: Mizrahi Resistance to Anti Arab Racism, in which we interviewed Keren Soffer Sharon about her work at Jews for Racial & Economic Justice [JFREJ], and broader Mizrahi Resistance. You should also listen to our interview with Tom Pessah, in which we talked about his work with Amram, a group working to expose the truth about Israel’s mass kidnapping of Yemenite, Mizrahi and Balkan children in the 1950s. We spoke about the racism that led to these kidnappings, and his investigation into JIMENA, the largest group representing Mizrahi Jews in the US.
