Yishai is joined in a busy Jerusalem café by his friend and colleague Rabbi Shimshon Nadel.   Together, they discuss the relationship of Purim today and how Jews celebrating in exile led to a situation that caused a sudden waking up and realization and desire to move home.  Specific Halachic laws regarding Purim falling on Friday night are also elaborated on.

In the final two segments of this week’s show, Yishai presents a Purim class he gave the tought on the eve of Purim 5772 at HaKotel Yeshiva in Jerusalem.  The text of the Megilla is full of secrets about how to handle the dangers of Amalek. Follow the criminal mind and learn about the traits of Amalek, if you dare to fight him. The show wraps up with Benjamin Netanyahu’s strong speech from AIPAC 2012 in which he called for dealing firmly with the threat of Iran, and not waiting for other nations to deal with Israel’s foes for her.
