Episode #188: Who is a Jew? It’s nice to share.

The boys are pleased as punch to return to the Twilight Lounge after a three-week (!) absence, but they are not eager to share their dinners. Listen in as Rosen skirts the boundaries of civilized discourse as they discuss his “special eating needs,” then stick around to hear tales of Julius and Ethel Rosenberg’s son, Jeremy’s Corbyn’s coded language and whether Scarlett Johansson is “actually” Jewish. And speaking of maybe-Jews, this week we ask:

Does it really matter if Julia Salazar is “really a Jew?”

New York’s latest Democratic Socialist du jour has a problem: nobody believes her when she says she’s a “Jewish immigrant,” partly because her history suggests otherwise. Is it ok for this former Christian activist with a half-Jewish father to “re-claim” her Jewish identity? Do we need all the Jews we can get, even the ones who favor BDS and may or may not have complete their conversion process? About the only thing guaranteed on this one is that Goldbrener will get the last word. 

Get your own.
