Weekly Roundup - 03/25/24

This week: For the newsletter, Jewish Currents fellow Jonathan Shamir explores Israel’s ongoing oscillation between exclusion and exploitation in its approach to Palestinian workers.

On the occasion of Purim, Israel/Palestine fellow Maya Rosen meditates on the biblical injunction to “wipe out” Amalek, its use in justifying an ongoing genocide, and possibilities for reading otherwise.

As the Israeli army’s renewed assault on al Shifa hospital continues, we are re-sending dispatches, first published in October, where Gaza’s doctors describe their struggle to save lives within a collapsed medical system.
