Celebrate Hanuka with a radio roadtrip to the hamam in Ramallah. Plus an interview with Persian Israeli director Yuval Delshad about his award-winning Farsi drama Baba Joon.

Meet Ronny Edry, creator of the Israel Loves Iran campaign. Celebrate Purim with Shtetl in the Middle East at the tent city protest and in a local Iranian restaurant. Lots of music and pre-election reflections.

In a mystical, Hasidic, or stoner interpretation, Purim represents a chance to see beyond the duality of good and evil. Author Joseph Rosen explains why we should all get wasted with the enemy, and just how hard that can be.
