On this episode, we talk about the Montreal businessman being called the ‘Jewish Schindler’ and break our promise to stop talking about the Canadian election. We reflect on the legacy of Montreal’s Yom Kippur Ball and try to get to the bottom of an instance of vandalism at an Illinois Chabbad Centre. We’re then joined by Erika Davis, who runs the blog Black Gay and Jewish, to talk about the work she’s doing to combat racism within the Jewish community with the Jewish Multiracial Network.
