    The New Sepharad: The Rise and Fall of Jewish Salonica (Rerun)

    The New Sepharad: The Rise and Fall of Jewish Salonica (Rerun)

    Jewish history professor Aron Rodrigue of Stanford University was the keynote speaker at an international conference held this week at the Van Leer Jerusalem Institute, dedicated to the Jewish history of Salonica. In the late 15th century, the then-Ottoman city (today the Greek city of Thessaloniki) welcomed large numbers of Sephardi Jews who had been expelled from Spain, making it very soon the largest Jewish city in Europe. A series of crises and disasters, culminating in the Nazi occupation in the 1940s, led to its ultimate destruction.

    First, Do No Harm: Rashid Khalidi on US Peace-Blocking (Rerun)

    First, Do No Harm: Rashid Khalidi on US Peace-Blocking (Rerun)

    America has long been viewed as the quintessential broker of Israeli-Palestinian peace. In his book Brokers of Deceit: How the US Has Undermined Peace in the Middle East, Columbia University Professor Rashid Khalidi argues that it's no accident peace has not yet materialized. He shows how the US undermines, rather than advancing an agreement, by playing the role of "Israel's lawyer," or perhaps its siamese twin.

    Are You There, Allah? It's Me, Haroon (Rerun)

    Are You There, Allah? It's Me, Haroon (Rerun)

    Growing up is the pits in the best of times. Growing up Muslim in America has special complexities. Being Muslim in America, diagnosed with bipolar disorder, coming of age during and after September 11, and becoming a public speaker on the religion and culture of Islam could be a formula for collision. Haroon Moghul, Fellow in Jewish-Muslim relations at the Shalom Hartman Institute, has many: with the world, with God, with himself. His book weaves together stories of personal, political, and religious development, and answers questions about Islam for the perplexed of any faith.

Wonderful series of intellectually stimulating programs

I often feel like I am part of a sparkling conversation.

Intellectual travel

This is a fantastic podcast. I find myself binge listening a number of ‘episodes’ in a row for an intellectual vacation - a wide range of interesting topics covered at a depth we rarely get to see and in an honest and thoughtful way. This level of thinking seems so absent from many other sources: At a time when we can find a perspective on almost anything, it’s great to hear from academics, writers and thinkers (and more) who are genuinely keen to bring you into their world, their work, and their insights so that you may have a glimpse - from a guide who has thought deeply. This podcast is a wonderful treasure.

Excellent and informative for the interested, open mind

Podcast exploring wide ranging issues and ideas. The hosts are engaging and I find myself drawn into pretty much any topic. Discussions are at high, thoughtful, and stimulating level - including a little touch of humor which helps me feel I am in the room, participating in the conversations. I have learnt from the podcast a great deal about Israel, the Middle East, and the Jewish world. Much grist for lunch and dinner table conversations.
