    Taking a Seat at the Seder Table (Season 5 Episode 12)

    Pesach prep can take your time, energy, and attention away from the spiritual aspects of seder. Anne and Shoshanna went looking for "women's Torah" to enrich our seder experiences, and enlist Rabbanit Sara Wolkenfeld for her insights, experience, and many tips to help our seders be all they can be - without adding much prep time.

    Saving Refugees' Lives, and Then Complicating Them (Season 5 Episode 11)

    When the news is filled with war and terror, it's hard to focus on the lasting issues, but that's exactly what Shoshanna and Anne try to do in this episode. Specifically, who is a Jew? Israel's Law of Return and Jewish law do not agree. Where does that leave the people who are caught in the gap between them, and how does that relate to the war in Ukraine?
