In this episode, Yonit and Jonathan consider the ‘deal of the century’, in the light of the negotiations underway between former Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and the legal authorities in Israel for him to avoid a trial in exchange for lesser charges and being excluded from public office. They ask what it could mean for him, his party and politics as a whole in Israel.

And in the week following the hostage crisis at a synagogue in Texas, Yonit and Jonathan assess the impact of yet another attack on a Jewish institution in the US. They speak to a leading Los Angeles Rabbi, Sharon Brous, about the implications of rising anti-Semitism for American Jews and the sense of vulnerability, despite the community’s apparent success.

And finally for chutzpah and mensch, we get a fallen star of Hollywood and a super-Rabbi.
