How can we celebrate when our people are in captivity? Yet, Passover isn't cancelled this year, even if you feel it should be, so how do we make sense of it? In what is now an annual pre-Passover episode to help boost our seder experience, Anne and Shoshanna talk to Dr. Tammy Jacobowitz about how to approach the holiday this very difficult year. Mu…

Six months into Israel's war with Hamas, and nearly all sectors of Israeli society are feeling it, but extended army service and a sadly rising death toll have turned Israeli attention to the Haredim who (for the most part) do not serve in the IDF. Much of Israel is irate, but with the yeshiva exemptions newly canceled, Haredim are irate too. Anne …

Yes, representation in Israeli politics really matters. Shoshanna and Anne delve into why women running for municipal office is so important (even during the war). For all that elected officials should represent the concerns of the entire population, it is too easy to miss issues that don't touch one directly. Thus, the need for women to focus on c…

Does "Together, we will win" inspire you or depress you? Shoshanna and Anne "take the temperature" of how people are reacting differently to the same general experience of war, from how it is a different experience for Israelis as compared to those around the globe, and how it is different for every Israeli. As promised in the episode, the insane s…

Were the pre-October 7th warnings dismissed because they originated with women? Are the men of the old-boy network at a disadvantage because they have been trained to think in certain ways? Shoshanna and Anne recognize the women who were involved in so many various aspects of October 7th and the war since, with an eye to how women can (and we'll sa…

Since October 7, Israel has tragically, devastatingly seen more people burying loved ones and sitting shiva than the country could ever have been prepared for.

Antisemitism is the oldest hatred in the book, yet, even in the wake of the October 7th massacre, it's new for each generation, and each person experiences it fresh. Shoshanna and Anne call attention to what's been going on, and consider how we as a people stick together to combat the hatred against us. Plus, a postscript on the American Jewish com…

The new reality of Israel and really all Jews is stressful and even traumatic. Anne and Shoshanna talk with Sherri Mandell, a certified pastoral counselor, a founder of the Koby Mandell Foundation, and the bereaved mother of Koby Mandell Hy"d, about how to navigate this challenging time, from parenting to handling oneself to helping others. Music: …

Shoshanna and Anne have been nearly at a loss for words to reflect on Hamas's horrific massacre of some 1,400 people (updated number from recording). But we need words to podcast, so here we are with our experiences of that day, and a range of responses and reactions to it, from widespread chesed to social media warriors to some hypermodesty nonsen…

The idea that Israel's beautiful natural pools would have separate hours for men and women to swim is, at first blush, amazingly considerate for the religious populations. But when the very people MK Idit Silman's stalled pilot program is supposed to help don't want it implemented, Shoshanna and Anne are reminded why gender segregation outside of t…

Israel's government voted for the first part of Israel's judicial reform, the "reasonableness" clause, and everyone has an opinion about it, but Anne and Shoshanna focus on other actions of this coalition that are less known and may be even more significant, especially if you're a woman in Israel. Music: "Misery" by The Whips…

Politics have real impact on the lives of Israeli citizens, and the recent passing of the budget means the current ultra-religious, ultra-nationalist government can expect to be in place for some time. Anne and Shoshanna task guest Haviv Rettig-Gur, senior analyst at The Times of Israel, to explain the implications of it all. To do so, he also desc…

In an era of choice, we have many options how we approach our loved ones, communication, our experience of Judaism, and more.

Dr. Chavi Kahn joins Anne and Shoshanna to reflect on the legacy of her father, Rabbi Moshe Kahn, z"l, beloved Talmud rebbe at Stern College -- and the recent brouhaha when Stern (temporarily) cancelled its lower level course offerings in Talmud. Why does it matter whether Stern College offers Talmud to its female students? And why should women be …

You know already that hyper-tzniut gets Chochmat Nashim riled up - it's literally the incarnation of the slide to extremism that harms Judaism for everyone. This time it's a cross-body bag, giving Shoshanna and Anne reason to remind everyone that this very Jewish value can be taken too far. Music: "Misery" By The Whips…

Would more women in Israel's coalition change its policies? Who knows, but they'd make a more representative government. Shoshanna and Anne discuss the reversals to women's rights that we'd never have thought would be in danger, in the wake of International Women's Day, no less. Music: "Misery" by The Whips…

It was a brand new Chochmat Nashim project when Shoshanna and Anne first told you about it back in August, and now that it's well underway, it's ripe for an update. How many courts are reviewed on the site? Why did one dayan complain about his rating? How is it helping people who think they might want a divorce? And what about that new training pro…

What are we to do when those who hold positions of responsibility don't rise to the occasion of their office?

Israel's presumptive new government may legalize sex segregation where Israeli law had prohibited it.

For nearly a decade (!), Chochmat Nashim has been exposing and explaining the damage caused by erasing women - that goes so far beyond an interest in seeing women's faces. Anne and Shoshanna revisit the topic with the insights borne of conversations with too many naysayers. It's time to end the erasure of women - and just chill! Music: "Misery" by …

The ultra-Orthodox world is banning the internet for women, cutting them off from their livelihoods, their social networks, and their access to information.

Anne and Shoshanna take the pulse of how Israel's complex (and teetering) coalition government has improved some of the systems in Israeli society that we care about (with a special mention for Chochmat Nashim's deputy director).

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?

Art Spiegelman's "Maus" is a profound treatment of both the Holocaust itself and the experience of the "second-generation." It also, apparently, is a risky, corrupting influence - in Tennessee, at least. You likely have heard about school board's decision -- Anne and Shoshanna discuss how it reflects the misguided culture of censorship and the dram…

The Chaim Walder affair is off the front page, but still reverberating in the Orthodox world.

"What does that have to do with the price of tea in China?!" In Hebrew, this famous rhetorical question is captured by a famous comment by Rashi: What does Shemitah have to do with Mount Sinai?!
