Happy New Year!

With Rosh Hashanah behind us, and Yom Kippur ahead of us, we are making the most of these 10 Days of Awe. We’ll meet expert organizer and counselor Nahva Follman, who will help us succeed in sticking with our New Year’s resolutions, and give ourselves a fresh start in life. You can contact Nahva through her website: Jerusalemmanagement.webs.com

Next, Yiftach Paltrowitz, one of Israel’s most in-demand photographers of Jewish celebrations and life events, makes a return visit to the show to discuss the very special weekly task he volunteers to undertake: operating a Shabbat siren (pictured). Especially during these Days of Awe, when Jewish people everywhere are strengthening their observance of mitzvot (heavenly commandments) we’ll find out the role this siren plays in readying us for Shabbat, and how Yiftach manages to consistently sound this wake-up call in his neighborhood. You can contact Yiftach through his website: yiftachphotography.com

Frequent show contributor, Andrea Simantov has Redemption on the brain, and tells us why she doesn’t quake at the idea of the Day of Judgment. Listen and get psyched up for Yom Kippur! You can contact Andrea via email: andreasimantov@gmail.com

Conversations with Heroes – Is Israel Still Fighting the War of Independence? [audio]

Thursday, September 22nd, 2016

The Land of Israel is often referred to as the Promised Land because of The Creator’s repeated promise (Gen. 12:7, 13:15, 15:18, 17:8) to give the Land to the descendants of Abraham. Neither this promise nor history’s overabundance of agreements, proclamations, resolutions, wars, and the establishment of The State of Israel itself seems to have convinced the world that the Jewish people have a rightful claim to this Land.

On this week’s show, Heather speaks with three inspiring Israelis who were born outside the Land of Israel, made Aliyah, and overcame many an obstacle to claim their place in the Land and even utilize their unique talents to help their fellow Jews.

Meet Nina Brenner Bukstein, who heroically overcame the challenges of moving to Israel as a single mom with almost no prospects or income, yet courageously and resolutely built a thriving business; Paint Parties Israel. In the most surprising ways, you will hear how her company’s events both entertain and transform participants across the country.

Rivka Aminoff, Founder and Principal of Kol Hadassa High School (and previous show guest!) returns to discuss her unique relationship to the Land of Israel, which began with her upbringing in Australia to her eventual relocation to Israel. It was dear old Dad who helped her reframe a particularly disappointing first visit to the Western Wall. Check out what he told his daughter about the holy site.

Frequent guest contributor, David Olesker, founder of the Jerusalem Center for Communication and Advocacy Training (JCCAT) checks in this week and makes the case for naming all of Israel’s battles, skirmishes, and intifadas: Israel’s War of Independence. If you think Israel’s War of Independence was a fait accompli in 1948, think again says Olesker.

Conversations with Heroes – Is Donald Trump the Hero that the U.S. and Israel are Hoping for? [audio]

Thursday, September 15th, 2016

Heather’s guest, Abe Katsman, counsel for Republicans Overseas: Israel, looks beyond the campaign promises of the Republican and Democratic Presidential candidates to their actual record when it comes to the United States’ relationship with Israel. He clarifies why the U.S. and Israel need each other, and how Iran and the rest of the Middle East fit into the picture. And why is Hillary Clinton’s physical health relevant to this election? Stay tuned for an insightful look at some of the key the issues of this election.

Heather will also check in with frequent contributor, writer and businesswoman Andrea Simantov. A lifelong American voter and resident of Israel for over 20 years, Andrea reminds us that this election is more than just a battle of ideologies; it’s an opportunity for each of us to ask who our own personal hero beyond this election is.

Reflecting on 9-11 and Remembering the Victims and Heroes of 9-11 and their Families

Sunday, September 11th, 2016

Our hearts and thoughts are with the victims and heroes of 9-11 and their families, as we approach this fifteenth anniversary of 9-11 (2001), and the fourth anniversary of the ‘Benghazi 9-11’ (in 2012). We join all those who lost loved ones in grieving for the irreplaceable lives that were destroyed, and pray for comfort for those left behind.

This is also a time for reflection.

In the wake of 9-11, almost the entire nation felt a sense of unity – black, white or red, we were all one. The nation felt overwhelming gratefulness to the firefighters and police officers who risked and in many cases lost their lives trying to rescue citizens trapped in the burning towers, and we were firmly determined to stamp out radical Islamist terrorism. Americans also newly understood the terror that innocent Israeli citizens have been subjected to for decades, since before the State of Israel was reborn.

Where has all this gone? Today, we are beset with divisiveness. There are racial movements that preach hatred of the police – the very same people who risked their lives to rescue fellow citizens on 9-11. As occurred in San Bernadino with fatal consequences, Americans have become afraid to report suspicious terror activities for fear of being accused of bigotry or “Islamophobia.” Israel is condemned on college campuses and even by certain churches for defending her citizens from terror attacks. Al Qaeda offshoots such as ISIS perpetrate terror attacks in various parts of the world almost every day.
Iran planned the 9-11 attacks and then joined in an alliance with al Qaeda to finalize the plot and carry out 9-11; trained the 9-11 terrorists; and provided a flight simulator in Tehran for the 9-11 terrorists’ flight training.

And, we are feeding the hand that bit us. Yesterday’s hearing before the House Financial Services Oversight and Investigations Subcommittee on Capitol Hill painfully reminded us that the U.S. administration has been sending billions of dollars to Iran, including extraordinary amounts in cash that will no doubt be used to finance more terror.

ZOA previously summarized and publicized Iran’s key role in and complicity in 9-11, documented by the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of New York in its Findings of Fact in Havlish v. bin Laden, et al – a case brought by 9-11 victims against al Qaeda, the Islamic Republic of Iran, Hezbollah and other Iranian and Iranian-backed entities, after years of investigation, prompted by information initially uncovered by the 9-11 Commission.

Briefly, Iran planned the 9-11 attacks and then joined in an alliance with al Qaeda to finalize the plot and carry out 9-11; trained the 9-11 terrorists; provided a flight simulator in Tehran for the 9-11 terrorists’ flight training; along with Iran’s proxy Hezbollah, arranged travel and visas for the 9-11 terrorists and accompanied the 9-11 terrorists on flights; and helped al Qaeda terrorists and their families escape from Afghanistan after 9-11.

On 9-11 this year, let’s pray for comfort for those who were forever bereaved by this tragedy; work towards restoring a sense of unity in our nation; once again honor our police and other first responders; understand and support Israel’s struggle against the same Islamist terror that has too often struck us in America; make sure that no more funds are sent to Iran or any regime that supports terror; and determine to finally stamp out radical Islamist terror.

Conversations with Heroes – This is Why Palestinian Arabs are Prisoners of Hamas [audio]

Thursday, September 8th, 2016

This week, Heather talks with three visionaries who have, as Captain James T. Kirk says, “boldly gone where no man has gone before.” We’ll meet an educator founded an amazing all-English school for students whose families have made Aliyah to Israel. Later in the show, we’ll get behind-the-scenes stories from one of Israel’s favorite photographers of Jewish celebrations, who shot photos of William Shatner (“Captain Kirk”) on a visit to Israel, Natan Sharansky, and some of the tense goings on in the Israeli Knesset.

Heather will also check in with frequent contributor and Advocate for Israel, David Olesker, who will explain why he calls Hamas a “Terrorist kingdom,” and why he insists that Palestinian Arabs are prisoners of Hamas.
