On this episode, we took some time to reflect on changes in the Jewish political landscape following the US election. We spoke with Aurora Levins Morales about her recent article in the Nation, mentoring younger Jewish activists, and putting a Trump victory into historical context. We ended the show with our usual Shkoyach segment – David giving theirs to an anti-poverty group and Sam giving his to a Montreal neighbourhood.
