Jews throw around words like “goy” and “shiksa” between themselves in good fun. But when that language bleeds into the outside world, Jews may need to check themselves before offending others. Plus: Do Jews need to worry about the word “genocide” when applied to Indigenous Canadians? And an update to our segment about the Netflix roast of Anne Frank. CJN operations manager Ella Burakowski co-hosts.

The Canadian Jewish Shmooze is hosted by Michael Fraiman and Alex Rose, and edited by Michael Fraiman. Our intro music is by Vanya Zhuk, and our outro music is by Latché Swing.
