Ep. 327: For Tisha B’Av, we’re talking to Rebecca Soffer of Modern Loss about grief, and Walter Russell Mead about Israel and America

August 4, 2022

This week on Unorthodox, we’re getting serious. It’s Tisha B’Av, the Jewish day of mourning that commemorates the destruction of the Temple in Jerusalem. (Read more about Tisha B’Av here.)

Our Jewish guest is Rebecca Soffer of Modern Loss, who returns to the show to tell us about her new book, The Modern Loss Handbook: An Interactive Guide to Moving Through Grief and Building Your Resilience.

Our gentile of the week is Walter Russell Mead, who joins us to discuss his new book, The Arc of a Covenant: The United States, Israel, and the Fate of the Jewish People. He tells us why he wanted to dispel preconceived notions about America’s support for Israel, and explains why so many non-Jews throughout American history have supported the creation of a Jewish state.
