Weekly Roundup - 12/26/22

This week: A roundup of Jewish Currents work published this year. The Jewish Currents staff discusses Christmas. And a new podcast episode on Tom Stoppard’s play Leopoldstadt.

Plus, from the newsletter, Joshua Leifer explains how the opposition to Benjamin Netanyahu’s extremist government has focused on corruption and matters of religion and state, instead of the repression of Palestinians and further entrenchment of settlements.

This is our last roundup of the year; we’re taking this week off, so we’ll see you in 2023!
