NOTE: We recorded this more than a month before its release. But then the Meron tragedy happened, and we didn’t want to shift the focus (Shoshanna spoke about it with Rabbi Scott Kahn, on the Orthodox Conundrum). And the rockets started flying (you heard us talk about that, in the thick of things). Thank God, now we have a chance to release this episode. We wish it had become outdated… some of our references, such as to “this past week,” definitely did. Unfortunately, violence against women is an “evergreen” topic.
So… we’re here to let you know about MK Bezalel Smotrich’s “rescue” of an agunah. And the covert missionaries that rocked Jerusalem for a time (they’re still at large). And we delve into the perennial violence against women, from the most horrendous of biblical tales to events of 2021.
