Weekly Roundup - 10/3/22

This week: For our Summer 2022 issue, Mari Cohen reports on the tensions roiling the academic discipline of Israel studies. On our podcast, Joshua Leifer speaks with two activists, Naftuli Moster and Frieda Vizel, on their contrasting visions for the future of Hasidic education. From the newsletter, Jael Goldfine interviews Ezra Furman about her new album All of Us Flames.

One last thing: G’mar chatima tova. We hope you have a meaningful Yom Kippur!
