On the first Broigus we discuss the future for left wing Jews. This was recorded when I was running out of time at Limmud Festival so the pacing is rather swift! Featuring Rabbi Michael Muskowitz, Marjorie Ingal, Daniel Anderson, Ben Crowne and Julia Gazdag.

1:02:35 – The Rubashkin Conclusion

For those who don’t know, I explain the Shlomo Rubashkin affair. Unfortunately, as hard as I tried I couldn’t find anyone to talk to me who was pro Rubashkin and I tried a lot of people! If I missed you out, please do get in touch as I want the Bagel to be a place for Jews of all stripes – oy@bagelpodcast.com
