- Despite rosy projections, 2020 could be worst year for aliyah in nearly a decade
- Keeping the faith: What will the future hold for U.S. synagogues post-lockdown?
- 'There’s so much anger – and hope': Why these N.Y.C. Jews are joining the George Floyd protests
Allison, Judy and Amir discuss how the events of 2020 have turned many of the underlying assumptions of Jewish peoplehood upside down: Which is the “safer” place to be, and which is the more dangerous place for Jews these days – Israel or the Diaspora? How will this period of enforced separation – in which, for the first time, Diaspora Jews are forbidden from entering the Jewish state – change their relationship to it?
Judy, who has covered the Israel-Diaspora relationship for many years, discusses speculation that a second coronavirus wave could fuel immigration from America and Europe, as Diaspora Jews become increasingly concerned for their safety.
Allison and Amir, who cover U.S. and Israeli politics, talk about the recent surge in civil unrest in American cities – on the heels of the recent rise in anti-Semitism – and how it is playing out in U.S. Jewish communities.
