22 Yiddish Feminism & The Yom Kippur Balls

On this week’s episode, we talked about CKUT’s funding drive (please donate if you can!), a journalist who doesn’t understand our tagline, Canadian PM Justin Trudeau’s visit to a synagogue, and that giant cross of secularism. We were joined by Annie Cohen to discuss Jewdas’ recent Yom Kippur Ball, as well as the collective’s organizing against the institutional Jewish community in the UK. Finally, we spoke with Sandy Fox of the recently-launched podcast Vaybertaytsh, to talk about Yiddish, Feminism, and podcasting.
