A Night of Revelation and the Musical Spirit of Israel

4 Sivan 5775 – May 22, 2015
Why does Shavuot (Festival of Weeks or Pentecost) have so many themes running through it? Agriculture, Mount Sinai, the Ten Commandments, the Book of Ruth, King David, the Baal Shem Tov, the consumption of dairy products and more all come together on this holiday, that begins Saturday night. Yishai is joined in-studio by Rabbi Mike Feuer to make sense of it all, ahead of the great "revelation." Then, Yishai is joined in-studio by Nachman and Sruli -- the Solomon Brothers -- who created their own band of bluegrass music, infused with spiritualism and folk rock, influenced by the likes of Bob Dylan and Neil Young. Their special blend of music has gained them numerous TV appearances and rave reviews. Their live performance at VOI will blow you away.

Time to Go Home

Yishai Visits Beilis and the Baal Shem Tov in the Ukraine

18 Heshvan 5774 – October 22, 2013
The hook that finally got me to Ukraine was a conference about antisemitism. Yes, it is ironic, and maybe bold: a conference about antisemitism in Ukraine.

Haredi Leader: Wearing a Shtreimel Is Chilul Hashem

16 Elul 5773 – August 22, 2013
Because of the wide public discussion of the need to stop needless pain to animals, wearing a shtreimel today is a desecration of God's name.

The Scholars Of Brodi

17 Kislev 5773 – November 30, 2012
A famous scholars of the beis midrash in the city of Brodi was Rav Avraham Gershon of Kitov. This modest and unassuming man possessed such wondrous qualities of goodness and knowledge that the great Nodah B’Yehudah referred to him, in part, as follows:

The Ever-Amazing Reb Elimelech (Part XIV)

24 Heshvan 5773 – November 8, 2012
As has been noted in a previous column, Reb Elimelech – like the Baal Shem Tov before him – asserted that pessimism and depression cause sin and spiritual apathy. Repentance (yes, even repentance!) that causes depression and sadness distances the Holy Presence.

Reb Elimelech M’Lizhensk (Part IX)

25 Sivan 5772 – June 14, 2012
The Baal Shem Tov was the founder and the visionary of chassidus, but the architect who built and spread the movement was Rabbi Dov Ber, the maggid of Mezeritch.

Reb Elimelech M’Lizhensk (Part VIII)

25 Iyyar 5772 – May 16, 2012
Scholars have debated where precisely the Baal Shem Tov was born, few giving credence to the tiny village of Okopy (pronounced Akup). Most likely he hailed from Kolomyya on the slopes of the Carpathian Mountains and on the banks of the Prut River. Nearly 300 years have lapsed since the passing of the Baal Shem Tov and all the while the stories of his miraculous abilities have increased. Yet all fail to fully portray his greatness.

Reb Elimelech M’Lizhensk (Part VI)

29 Adar 5772 – March 22, 2012
The popularity of the rise of chassidus did not go unnoticed by those who did not share the same allegiance. As long as the movement was limited to the commoner and isolated in a few pockets of Poland no one perceived it as a threat. But all of this had changed by 1772.

Reb Elimelech M’Lizhensk (Part IV)

26 Tevet 5772 – January 20, 2012
Reb Elimelech M’Lizhensk was considered one of the finest students of the Baal Shem Tov’s successor, the Maggid MiMezretch. When the Maggid passed away, his disciples gathered for the funeral and then had to decide who would succeed their master.

Reb Elimelech M’Lizhensk (Part II)

28 Heshvan 5772 – November 24, 2011
The parents of Reb Elimelech M’Lizhensk, Eliezer Lipman and his pious wife, Mirish, emanated from families that could trace their lineage all the way back to Rashi, Rav Yochanan Hasandlar of Talmudic fame and even King David. They lived in the townlet of Lapachi, not far from Tiktin.

The Eighth Commandment

5 Sivan 5770 – May 18, 2010
Lo Signov - You Shall Not Steal. On the surface, it sounds quite uncomplicated. (Aren't even young children taught not to help themselves to something - anything - that is not theirs?) If we are honest with ourselves, however, we'd have to agree the myriad ways this commandment is breached render it less straightforward than the two simple words might at first glance imply.

To Each… His Own

5 Tishri 5770 – September 23, 2009
If only each of us paid heed to the words of the powerful prayer we silently read through remorseful tears, perhaps we would think twice before allowing negative emotions - such as envy - to bring us to ruin.
