What Matters Now to Yossi Klein Halevi: 5 big questions about the war

Noted author weighs in on the tough issues facing Israel and the Jewish people now – and how to conceive of the foreseeable future

Deputy Editor Amanda Borschel-Dan is the host of The Times of Israel's Daily Briefing and What Matters Now podcasts and heads up The Times of Israel's Jewish World and Archaeology coverage.

Welcome to What Matters Now, a weekly podcast exploration into one key issue shaping Israel and the Jewish World — right now.

This week we’re bringing excerpts from a Behind the Headlines video interview with author and journalist Yossi Klein Halevi, conducted exclusively for our Times of Israel Community.

A senior fellow and the Hartman Institute in Jerusalem, Klein Halevi is the author of books including “Letters to My Palestinian Neighbor” and “Memoirs of a Jewish Extremist.”

Drawing on themes from both of those books, as well as his other work, we asked Klein Halevi to answer five big questions about the war. We touch on topics including what “Never Again” means to Israelis today and how the Jewish community should relate to the anti-Zionist Jewish youth protesting on university campuses.

So this week, we ask thinker Yossi Klein Halevi — what matters now.

What Matters Now podcasts are available for download on iTunes, TuneIn, Pocket Casts, Stitcher, PlayerFM or wherever you get your podcasts.
