The Good Season Segment #1 

Forecasters are predicting that Israel could receive record amounts of snow and Yishai and Malkah begin this week’s show by showing excitement for snow in Jeruslaem. Yishai talks about his recent experience accompanying a special tour group, which included American legislators, on the Mount of Olives that was attacked by rock-throwing Arabs. Lastly, a recently planted palm with an iconic lineage, tracing back to Masada, is visited in the Negev.

Knesset Jeremy on the Tal Law Segment #2 

An early agreement between David Ben-Gurion and leaders of Israel’s ultra-orthodox community have allowed young Jewish men studying in Yeshiva to be exempt from military service. This exception has been a hot-button issue in the State of Israel for many years and legislation was put into place to slowly integrate young ultra-orthodox men into service in the Israel Defense Forces. Yishai and Jeremy Saltan discuss pros and cons of the Tal Law, the law that was enacted in order to put ultra-orthodox men into service. This law will be expiring soon and potential solutions are discussed. At the end of the segment, Yishai also talks about attending a memorial service for former Prime Minister Menachem Begin on the Mount of Olives and how his son, Benny Begin, is responding to the situation in Migron.

Tu B’Shevat in Satmar Williamsburg Segments #3   Segment#4

Tu B’Shevat, which is the new year of the trees, is a minor holiday that is traditionally not celebrated among many Jewish groups in the United States. During his recent tour of North America, Yishai led a Tu B’Shevat Seder for Satmar Chassidim in Williamsburg, Brooklyn, New York. Satmar Chassidim are generally not among the most Zionist Jewish groups but Yishai finds himself pleasantly surprised to see a group who love their land and the state that exists within it.

What makes this diary so historically significant is that it is not just the private memoir of Dr. Seidman. Rather, it is a reflection of the suffering of Klal Yisrael at that time.

Rabbi Lau is a world class speaker. When he relates stories, even concentration camp stories, the audience is mesmerized. As we would soon discover, he is in the movie as well.

Each essay, some adapted from lectures Furst prepared for live audiences, begins with several basic questions around a key topic.

More Articles from Moshe Herman

Randol Schoenberg, renowned attorney and president of the Los Angeles Museum of the Holocaust, discusses explosive issues with Yishai.

Schoenberg, the prestigious Jewish lawyer recently portrayed in the popular movie, “Woman in Gold,” and Yishai discuss the US Supreme Court’s refusal to allow Jerusalem to be identified as part of Israel on official documents, and its recent decision to recognize same-sex marriage. Then, they debate the Iran deal, coming to very different conclusions. Schoenfeld shares his thoughts on recent developments emerging from the Obama administration.


Baruch Widen, interfaith dialoguer and Arabist, joins Yishai to discuss the pro-Israel trend taking hold among the capital’s Arab population.

The community is applying for Israeli citizenship in unprecedented numbers. Baruch and Yishai consider why.

Rabbi Mottle Wolfe joins Yishai to discuss the contours of the religious-secular divide in the Jewish state.

The two show hosts talk about the phenomenon of the very secular Tel Aviv being a mere five kilometers away from the ultra-Orthodox Bnei Brak. The former celebrates Israel Independence Day, but doesn’t fast on the day that marks the loss of Jewish sovereignty 2,000 years ago. The latter observes the religious fast, but does not take part in the modern celebrations of statehood. They envision a way to move the process of building the third Jewish commonwealth forward.

Rabbi Mike Feuer joins Yishai to deconstruct the unique structure of the fifth book of the Torah, Devarim, or Deuteronomy.

Jews around the world are about to begin the weekly reading of the Book of Deuteronomy, a volume which acts as a transcription of Moses’s last speech to the people of Israel. Rabbi Feuer helps explain the volume’s special philosophy.

Conservative minister of the Canadian Parliament Peter Kent tells Yishai why his country will not agree to lift Iranian sanctions.

Kent, chair of the House of Commons Standing Committee on National Defense, explains that, unlike the United States, Canada demands to see true reform within the Islamic Republic before making concessions. This unwavering position places Canada as a leader against turning a blind eye to terrorism.

Rabbi Natan Slifkin, also known as the ‘Zoo Rabbi,’ explains the Torah’s view on dinosaurs to Yishai.

Rabbi Slifkin, director of the Biblical Museum of Natural History and author of the Torah Enclyopedia of the Animal Kingdom, has a wild discussion with Yishai about exotic biblical animals.

Nationally syndicated US radio show host Ethan Bearman describes for Yishai the average American’s perspective on the Iran deal.

According to Bearman, author of “Liars & Whores: How Big Government and Big Businesses Are Working to Save Their Assets, Not Yours,” many Americans take umbrage with their administration’s marked step away from Israel.

Likud party member Ze’ev Jabotinsky, namesake and grandson of the famous Zionist leader, discusses his grandfather’s legacy with Yishai.

On the 75th anniversary of the original Ze’ev Jabotinsky’s death, his descendent — the CEO of Tagar Computer Systems and an advocate for Israel’s rights under international law — talks with Yishai about the man and the legend.
