It’s Treyf’s bar mitzvah episode! On this special occasion, we reminisced about our 13th birthdays and the process of getting older as a podcast. We called Ilan Benattar from Jews for Racial and Economic Justice’s Mizrahi caucus to talk about a Tablet Magazine article and the concept of Mizrahi-washing. After some technical issues the first time around, Dave Zirin joined us for the interview, discussing Zionism and Palestine solidarity activism in the NBA. And finally, our recommendation went to the recent New York Times parody issue distributed by JVP/Jews Say No, and we spoke to Beth Miller about the project.
