Every other week, Rabbi Ammi Hirsch hosts intellectually honest conversations unpacking current events through the lens of Jewish wisdom. Unbound by politics and untethered by party lines, Ammi and his expert guests discuss everything from race and antisemitism to all the other issues that keep you up at night.

Julia Bennett grew up on Long Island and was a camper, counselor, and limmud specialist at URJ Eisner Camp. She completed a self-designed major in Jewish studies at Clark University and received her master’s in religious education from Hebrew Union College-Jewish Institute of Religion in New York. After watching the movie “Babe” when she was seven, she decided to become a vegetarian and she’s been vegan since she was 14. She loves “Harry Potter” and is currently working with a friend to translate one of the books from Hebrew to English. She starts every day with Starbucks and ends every day by reading (but the book has to have a “happily ever after”).
