Ep 16: Mizrahi-Palestinian Solidarity with Sigal Samuel

…Your episode of TREYF for the 20th of Adar II 5776

On this week’s episode: we cleared the air on statements made about Jewish hockey players, condemned the Canadian Jewish News’ questionable news coverage, and talked about grogger’s (yet again). We spoke with +972 journalist Mairav Zonszein about what got lost in the conversations about Trump’s speech at the AIPAC conference. Shkoyakhs were given to BDS activists in Oshawa, Ontario, and to a robot who infiltrated an Open Hillel event. Sigal Samuel, the Forward’s Opinion Editor, joined us for the Interview. We talked about Mizrahi-Palestinian Solidarity, and the popularity of intersectionality in the North American Jewish press.  Our recommendation goes to the Independent Jewish Voices’ Statement of Support for the Blacks Students Network at McGill University.
