On this episode: we talk about the new Amazon Prime show ‘The Man in the High Castle,’ provide some updates on the Canada-Israel Free Trade Agreement, and try to parse through the ways North American Jewish communities are talking about the nuclear deal signed by Iran. We reflect on CIJA’s attempt at a national conversation on Jewish safety and examine legal controversies surrounding the state of ‘J’ dating. We’re then joined by Clifton Nicholas, a Mohawk filmmaker and activist, to talk about his fundraising campaign to produce a new film looking back at the uprising in Kanesatake 25 years later.
*CORRECTION: In this episode, David mentioned that Black Lives Matter activists shut down the Gardiner Expressway in Toronto but it was actually the Allen.
