This week on the Jewish Review of Books Podcast, we spoke to Neta Stahl, professor of modern Hebrew literature at Johns Hopkins University, and the writer of the article “A Kibbutz and Its Fullness” for our recent issue.

Neta grew up on Kibbutz Kfar Aza, and reflects on her memories of the kibbutz as it was. She explores the influences of S.Y. Agnon, and the future of her home.

You can also hear more from Neta this Sunday, when she speaks with Jeffrey Saks this Sunday at noon Eastern about S.Y. Agnon and the ways we respond to trauma. Register here: https://agnonhouse.org.il/event/war-writing-remembrance-3/
