In Part 1 of today’s Haaretz Weekly, host Simon Spungin talks to Anshel Pfeffer about last week’s Judaism, Israel and Diaspora conference in Jerusalem. We also hear from some of the participants in the conference, including Isaac Herzog, Natan Sharansky and Rabbi Delphine Horvilleur, on the main issues on the agenda, from anti-Semitism to Aliyah.

In Part 2, David Makovsky – the Ziegler Distinguished Fellow in The Washington Institute's Program on the U.S.-Israel Strategic Relationship and director of the Project on Arab-Israel Relations – tells us about “Decision Points,” a new podcast which aims to provide fresh insights into critical moments in the U.S.-Israel relationship from prominent historians and policymakers.
