On this episode: we discuss the institutional Jewish community’s response to the ongoing migration crisis, talk about the fight against BDS on Canadian campuses, and try to be more clear about when we’re being sarcastic. We reflect on the Jewish left’s response to recent repression of BDS Quebec, and debate the ethics of not feeding pets on Yom Kippur. We’re then joined by Sozan Savehilaghi to talk about No One Is Illegal’s new multimedia project Never Home, as well as Canada’s role in the global crisis of migration.
