It’s summer 2019, and we’re talking about the renewed debate over abortion through a Jewish and Israeli lens, followed by a conversation on the new NEW upcoming Israeli elections with Jewish Exponent reporter Jesse Bernstein, and we’re sharing the story of Haym Salomon, financial hero of the American Revolution.

We also had the chance to sit down with one of Philadelphia’s most famous authors, Jennifer Weiner, to talk about her new book Mrs. Everything, why its important for her to write Jewish characters and share their stories in her books, and the moment she realized she had become a Philadelphian.
