We start by discussing Israel’s conflicts with Gaza over the last two years, and how John’s kids visited Israel when they occurred. Reflecting on those incidents, John discussed the international legal framework for armed conflicts, including jus ad bellum (how wars begin) and jus in bello (how wars are fought). We then pivot to an audience request for Asher to discuss kosher wines, including how they are produced, what separates them from ordinary wines, and what philosophical lessons should be learned from those distinctions. We try to keep our meanderings to a minimum, with mixed success.
