Weekly Roundup - 6/12/23

This week: In a new report, Sarah Rosen and Jewish Currents fellow Dahlia Krutkovich investigate how Ronen Shoval, former head of Israeli ultra-nationalist group Im Tirtzu, ended up teaching at Princeton University.

For the newsletter, contributing editor Joshua Leifer explains Netanhayu’s use of the “salami method,” in which democratic norms are incrementally whittled down.

And in a new episode of our podcast, On the Nose, senior reporter Alex Kane talks with Palestinian journalist and activist Basel Adra about Masafer Yatta, a region of rural hamlets in the south of the occupied West Bank, whose residents risk eviction.
