On the second episode of our Israel mini-series, the Schmuckgirls have their first repeat guest – Adela Cojab. In our previous conversation with Adela, she discussed how she sued NYU for antisemitism and won. And that precedent she set is more important now than ever. The girls discuss how current college students are combatting antisemitism on campus and the difference in her experience suing NYU a few years ago vs. the students suing their colleges now. She also shares about her decision to turn her personal Instagram page into a full-fledge activist page. They talk about the digital war and how Jews will unfortunately always be outnumbered. Adela also shares about her 48 hour trip to Israel in which she had the opportunity to walk through the kibbutzes that were terrorized on October 7th as well as hear from survivors directly. She’s also shared how she’s been processing the difficult trip and advice she has for other Jews to get through this difficult time. The girls end with a brief conversation about dating during this difficult time for the Jewish community and how the conflict has been affecting Jewish dating.
