The Makom Israel Teachers Lounge is a weekly podcast with veteran Israel Educators Mike Unterberg and Alan Goldman, taking you behind the headlines to let you know what's really going on in Israeli politics, news and culture.

    A Palestinian's Perspective on the Abraham Accords

    A Palestinian's Perspective on the Abraham Accords

    Alan and Mike wanted to know how Palestinians view the normalization of ties with the UAE, Bahrain, and Sudan. They invited friend and colleague Firas Amad to share his thoughts. Firas is from East Jerusalem, and is a tour guide, educator and entrepreneur. We've invited him as a guest speaker to many of our students over the years. His opinions are his own, and they are informed and thought provoking. To understand any issue, it's crucial to hear out all sides and perspectives. That includes, maybe especially, perspectives that are very different from your own. From a Palestinian perspective, the new accords are largely irrelevant, and that becomes clear during the conversation. Join us for this engaging discussion!

    Should Israeli Politics Follow Enlightenment Principles?

    Should Israeli Politics Follow Enlightenment Principles?

    Alan, Mike and Sharon take a deep dive into Enlightenment philosophy to unpack why politics have become so dysfunctional. We think you'll enjoy coming along the ride for the ride. How do we debate permitting protests over Yom Kippur prayers in a productive way? How does modern philosophy help that discourse? Does post-modern philosophy help or hinder resolution of social dilemmas? What are facts? Its an unusual episode for our podcast, but a great look into a conversation in the Israel Teachers Lounge. Join us!
