Condemning BDS, Yehuda Glick’s ‘Thanksgiving’ and the App-Makers of the Jewish World

Wednesday, May 13th, 2015

(((CLICK BELOW TO HEAR AUDIO)))

Is a landmark US state senate resolution to combat BDS having a domino effect? On April 21, 2015, Tennessee Governor Bill Haslam became the first elected state official in the US to sign a landmark resolution to confront the anti-Semitic BDS movement. Tennessee was soon followed by Indiana, with others on the verge of getting on the bandwagon. Yishai is joined in-studio by Laurie Cardoza-Moore, the force behind the resolution. She is the founder and president of Proclaiming Justice to the Nations, whose mission is to increase awareness and action by educating Christians about their biblical responsibility to stand with their Jewish brethren and the state of Israel.

Then, Yishai talks to Temple Mount activist Rabbi Yehuda Glick, who was targeted for assassination six months ago by a terrorist who shot him in the chest four times. This was an attempt to silence Glick’s demand for equal rights on the Temple Mount, the holiest place on earth for Jews. Yishai interviews Glick at an event held at the Jerusalem restaurant where the terrorist was working on the night of the shooting — to give thanks to God for the rabbi’s survival of the attack.

Finally, are you looking for an app to remind you when to pray, how to pray, and whom to pray with? The Siddur (Jewish prayer book) app is just one of many Jewish apps created by RustyBrick. Yishai is joined by RustyBrick CEO Barry Schwartz to talk about Jewish app innovation; the future of smart watches; and to engage in the age-old debate: Android or Apple?
