Gershon Baskin has been at the forefront of Arab/Jewish relations in Israel for over 30 years. Montreal-based journalist Tamara Kramer, the creator and producer of Shtetl, interviews Gershon about his take on the current wave of violence in Jerusalem and his perspective on peace in the region. He shares his insights on the possibilities of a third intidada.
Shtetl gathers stories from the streets of the urban village. We’re an online magazine. A Radio Show. A Podcast. We host live events and do International Reporting. A virtual and a real community. Shtetl actually means small city or village in Yiddish. Despite the Yiddish name, the content knows no ethnic, racial or linguistic boundaries. We dig Arabic music, we interview Black Jews, queer Jews….non-Jews.
Shtetl aspires to a highly inclusive vision of Judaism. Never nasty in tone, Shtetl is a place with porous boundaries, open and accepting of guests and contributors from all communities.
Shtetl on the Shortwave (S.O.S.) is a radio show and podcast about Jewish Arts & Culture that has been airing on CKUT 90.3 FM in Montreal for seven years.
She has a degree in comparative religion and in journalism. Tamara is the creator and host of Shtetl on the Shortwave, a quirky radio show about alternative Jewish arts and culture based in Montreal and the editor of Shtetl Magazine.
