Last week, Israel returned Netanyahu to power as part of a right wing coalition that will include Itamar Ben Gvir, a racist politician who was the subject of last week’s episode. This week, Americans seem poised to return at least one chamber of Congress to the Republican party.

In this episode of Identity/Crisis, recorded on Election Day as Americans headed to the polls, Yehuda Kurtzer and Donniel Hartman discuss the crucial importance of Jewish and liberal democratic ideals in both societies, how to continue talking across difference as polarization increases, standing up for what is right even when it is not popular, and the role of the Shalom Hartman Institute itself in this crucial moment.
