May has been an exhausting month for Canada’s Jews—a steady stream of anti-Semitism conflating with anti-Zionism has flowed across social media and is affecting real-world businesses, institutions and communities. Meanwhile, Jewish voices from the left are rising louder than ever before, perhaps indicating that mainstream opinion on Israel-Palestine is shifting.

On today’s episode of our weekly Bonjour Chai podcast, Avi, Melissa and Ilana engage in an all-out debate about these issues and more.
