Each month, podcasters Hava Friedman and Josh Zelikovitz use Star Trek to boldly explore the worlds of Jews and Judaism. Join us as we unpack the Jewishness of Spock and examine how that legacy has shaped Star Trek and our own identities. We’ll question the role of Vulcans as “the Jewish Other” of the Federation and traverse the distance from Mount Sinai to Mount Selaya, contrasting Vulcan logical and classical rabbinic thought.
