Straight from the heart of Jerusalem comes the only English talk show on broadcast radio in the State of Israel (106.5FM). Yishai and Malkah Fleisher, two well-known internet radio personalities, made the leap to broadcast radio on the new Galey Yisrael station in Israel blazing a trail to create content for the growing segment of the Israeli public that speaks English. Here at JewishPress.com we are proud to present this week’s Yishai Fleisher Show online for listening and for download in cooperation with Galey Yisrael radio.

Segment 1: Maple Leaf Love of Israel. Yishai and Malkah discuss Canada’s love of Israel and the Jewish people and provide insight on how every Jew can make Aliyah every single day. Examples of ways Aliyah can be made without moving to Eretz Yisrael are discussed. Yishai talks about his experiences during his recent tour elaborating on stops in Toronto, Canada and Tallahassee, Florida.
Segment 2: Living a Hebrew Life. Malkah and Yishai discuss the importance of Jewish marriage, the simplicity of Jewish nationalism, and how simple things such as falafel and dancing the hora are distinctly Jewish. Yishai explains how important it is to revitalize Jewish events such as the Passover Seder and Havdalah in order to make them more invigorating and engaging for children. The concept of ‘Top-Down Judaism’ is also drawn out. Yishai and Malkah also talk about recent attacks on the Israelis in India, Thailand, and Georgia.
Segment 3: Experts Get Real On Middle East. Yishai comments on a recent panel, hosted by the Brookings Institute, that was aired on the American news program “Meet the Press”. Other than thinking that the United States would be the best nation to assist Arab countries currently in revolt, Yishai gives specific examples that would show how Israel could take advantage of the current situation in order to build strong and permanent relations with neighboring countries.
Segment 4: The Art of Being Happy. A rare English-language speech by Rebbitzin Yemima Mizrachi is presented in its entirety which encourages listeners to find ways to be and remain happy.
