This week, we spend like half the episode on background info, and in the back half casually try to figure out what love is, what our obligations to each other are, and if G-d can consent to people hurting us, so you know, just the easy stuff this week. Also, Lulav smushes together the English "Jerusalem" and the Hebrew "Yerushalayim" to create the word "Yerushalem" (thereby maybe accidentally re-creating Aramaic pronunciation?)
Transcript available here. Soon we're going to move all our transcripts to our new website, but for now they're still in Google Doc form.
This week's reading was Isaiah 54:1-55. Next week's haftarah reading will be Isaiah 40:27–41:16.
Jaz is reading The Prophets by Abraham Joshua Heschel. Lulav makes jokes about the podcast "The Shrieking Shack" and about The Fault in Our Stars by John Green. For more of Jaz yelling at G-d, you can see their poetry included the zine Dodi.
Content note: this episode contains non-graphic discussion of cultural genocide.
