Today’s podcast is a special one; I recorded this episode live, in front of a studio audience in our sanctuary.
Joining me was a returning guest, Dr. Einat Wilf, a former member of Israel’s Knesset who served as an intelligence officer in the Israel Defense Forces before earning her Ph.D. in political science from Cambridge. And we also welcomed my good friend David Hazony, an accomplished writer and the editor of my new book, “The Lilac Tree,” as well as the new book “Jewish Priorities: Sixty-Five Proposals for the Future of Our People,” to which Einat and I were honored to contribute.
About ‘In These Times with Rabbi Ammi Hirsch’: Every other week, Rabbi Ammi Hirsch hosts intellectually honest conversations unpacking current events through the lens of Jewish wisdom. Unbound by politics and untethered by party lines, Ammi and his expert guests discuss everything from race and antisemitism to all the other issues that keep you up at night. Recorded from New York’s Stephen Wise Free Synagogue, a historic Reform congregation deeply rooted in liberalism, support for Israel and social justice.
