Shmuel Rosner is a well known Tel Aviv–based columnist, editor, author and researcher. He and Eve Harow discuss a wide range of topics including aliya, annexation, the instability of the Mid East, COVID-19, Brazilian cruise ships and freedom of the press. His (co-authored with researcher Camil Fuchs) book ‘#IsraeliJudaism: Portrait of a Cultural Revolution’ is a fascinating study of the development of a Judaism unique to 21st century Israel. Vibrant, sustainable only in situ, how does he see Diaspora Judaism in relation to this old/new national civilization that has been created in our ancient land?
