Jews have always loved a good argument. From the oral teachings to the Talmud, the culture of arguing, making a point and then a counterpoint – is deeply rooted within the Jewish tradition.

Maybe that’s the reason that in recent years, under the radar, Israel has become an international juggernaut in the debate world. The debating clubs are thriving, and in international debating competitions, Israel is winning big prizes.

Yoni Cohen Idov is the world debate champion for 2019. He’s a debate coach and currently works in Israel, USA and China. He joins us to discuss the art of debating, so that hopefully, we’ll be a bit better at it.
