    Episode 8: Inside the Gaza Strip

    Episode 8: Inside the Gaza Strip

    For many years, conditions in the Gaza Strip have been dire. Among the issues faced there daily are high unemployment rates, travel restrictions, violence, a paucity of basic resources, political turmoil, and the blockades keeping residents confined in the small, overcrowded territory.

    Now, with the coronavirus pandemic and prospect of Palestinian elections, 2021 is an especially precarious time in Gaza. To help us understand what is happening on the ground, we’re joined today by Professor Mkhaimar Abusada: an associate professor and chairman of the department of political science at Al-Azhar University in Gaza City.

    Episode 7: Biden and the Conflict (Part 2)

    Episode 7: Biden and the Conflict (Part 2)

    When Joe Biden assumes the presidency, he’ll have no shortage of challenges to address. One, of course, will be the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, which looks a lot different than it did when he was Barack Obama’s vice president. To learn what Biden’s foreign policy might look like, we spoke with someone who has worked with the president-elect closely.

    On today's episode of EveryDay Voices, we’re joined by Matt Nosanchuk: liaison to the American Jewish Community in the Obama White House and a member of Obama’s National Security Council staff. During the 2020 campaign, Matt served as the Democratic National Committee’s Jewish outreach director. He is also the president and co-founder of New York Jewish Agenda.

    On Wednesday, January 20 at 1:00 PM ET, you're invited to a virtual conversation with Matt and our guests from this episode's first installment, Dr. Gershon Baskin and Nidal Fuquha, where we'll chat more about this crucial topic.
