Three yiddish stories hit the airwaves with accompanying music:
“Mazel Tov” – I.M. Weissenberg
“A Quiet Garden Spot” – Shalom Asch
“Dreyfus in Kasrilevske” – Sholom Aleichem
While Sholom Aleichem recounts the news of the Dreyfus Affair travelling to Eastern Europe, the show concludes with a presentation by Dr. Ariel Salzmann: “What will we learn from l’affair Arar?” Dr. Salzmann discusses the parallels between the anti-semitic fervor that led to Alfred Dreyfus’ unjust trial and the anti-Muslim attitudes and policies that led to Maher Arar’s rendition.
