This week on Unorthodox: a truly surprising knock-knock joke from a 13-year-old Unorthodox fan.

Our Jewish guest is Rebecca Vilkomerson, executive director of Jewish Voice for Peace, an organization whose mission includes working to end the Israeli occupation of the West Bank, Gaza Strip, and East Jerusalem and that supports the controversial Boycott, Divestment, and Sanctions movement. She explains why she believes her organization’s work is more important now than ever and spars with Liel over the merits of BDS.

Our Gentile of the Week is Mike Albowriter, performer, and humorist—whose next project is an off-Broadway performance based on his 2015 memoir, Spermhood: Diary of a Donor. His question for the panel is simple: Why are gay Jewish men so good in bed?
