In this week's episode, we discuss intriguing findings from the Pandora Papers leak regarding Israel – from offshore companies in tax havens that finance settlement purchases, to the business empire of Israel's richest politician. Uri Blau, a member of the investigative journalistic consortium that uncovered the documents, joins host Amir Tibon for a fascinating conversation (starting at time code 11:30).

Also on the show, Allison Kaplan Sommer takes us inside last week's Trump administration reunion in Jerusalem, which featured everything from an evangelical-funded documentary series to the potential launching of a 2024 presidential campaign. Hear the full story and the evening's highlights.
