Weekly Roundup - 7/18/22

This week: Now online from the Soviet Issue, George Prigov interviews Valeriya Nakshun about the Juhuri, or “Mountain Jews,” of the Eastern Caucasus. Peter Beinart analyzes how the Israel lobby is using unprecedented amounts of corporate money to oppose progressives on a wide range of issues.

Plus, from the newsletter, Naftuli Moster holds New York progressive politicians accountable for giving in to pressure from Haredi communal leaders instead of supporting the right to a basic education, while Alex Kane reports on how the family of the slain Palestinian American journalist Shireen Abu Akleh is demanding justice from the Biden administration. And in the latest episode of our staff podcast, On the Nose, Ari Brostoff speaks with representatives of tenant unions across the United States.
