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?

Tuesday, May 12th, 2015

(((CLICK BELOW TO HEAR AUDIO)))

Hear interviews about American anti-BDS efforts, Temple Mount woes and the rabbinate’s monopoly on Kosher certification. Yishai is joined by Doron Hindin, attorney at the prestigious law firm Herzog, Fox, Neeman. Doron, who specializes in fighting BDS through legal and other means, talks about new anti-BDS resolutions by US state assemblies and senates.

Then, Yishai is joined in-studio by Jerusalem Post editorial page editor Matthew Wagner, op-ed editor Seth Frantzman and magazine editor Laura Kelly to discuss an array of issues: Why is there anarchy on the Temple Mount? Are civil rights of both Jews and Arabs being protected? What is happening with the Dead Sea? And why is the rabbinate worried about its monopoly on kosher certification?

Jewish Music to Our Ears: Klezmer Clarinet and Impromptu Guitar Jam

Friday, May 8th, 2015

(((CLICK BELOW TO HEAR AUDIO)))

The fiber-glass clarinet of Moshe (“Musa”) Berlin is as iconic as the man who plays it. For more than 50 years, the master of klezmer has played at the massive annual festival of Lag BaOmer at Mt. Meron. This week he joined Yishai in-studio and made magical music.

Then, what happens when a guitar-playing Orthodox Rabbi asks a street violinist to jam with him in Jerusalem? The answer is: beautiful sounds. Indeed, Rabbi Tomer and Alexandra Kanarit know how to make music together. And they do it for Yishai in-studio, performing renditions of popular traditional and modern tunes.

Lag BaOmer, the Kabbalah, and the Renaissance of Jewish Womanhood

Thursday, May 7th, 2015

(((CLICK BELOW TO HEAR AUDIO)))

Yishai delves into two issues of intrigue: the Kabbalah and women. The holiday of Lag BaOmer is all about the victory of authentic Jewish culture and the Kabbalah — the mystical doctrines of the Torah. But what does that really mean? Can someone explain what the Kabbalah actually is? Rabbi Mike Feuer joins Yishai for a peak into the hidden, and inner, planes of Judaism.

Then, being a woman today means balancing family and career, leaving self-growth neglected. This was the impetus for the Jewish Women’s Renaissance Project, created to give Jewish women a chance to explore Israel, Judaism and themselves, while making friends similarly seeking a meaning-filled life. Yishai is joined in-studio by partnerships director Ariella Milobsky and trip director Tzippy Lieberman, who share their personal stories of growth and redemption, and discuss the that arose from Jewish women’s yearning for more.

What Makes the IDF Special; the Lag BaOmer Victory; Rescue in Nepal; and Crazy Coalition-Building

Wednesday, May 6th, 2015

(((CLICK BELOW TO HEAR AUDIO)))

The Israel Defense Force is not like other armies, says Colonel Richard Kemp, former commander of the British forces in Afghanistan, who spoke at the Israel Law Center’s “Towards a New Law of War” conference.

Then, why do we light bonfires on the Jewish holiday of Lag BaOmer? Historian and author Rabbi Ken Spiro, senior lecturer and researcher for Aish HaTorah’s Discovery Seminars and the JerusalemU, tells Yishai that the victory of Lag BaOmer is the victory of Torah over Roman paganism, and therefore is a continuation of the victory of the Maccabees over the anti-Jewish edicts of the Greeks.

Then, Yishai is joined in-studio by Yossi Fraenkel, operations officer of the International Unit at ZAKA — the Israeli emergency response team that specializes in rescue and body identification and extraction — to talk about his organization’s efforts in Nepal, following the earthquake. Yishai talks about Or Asraf, the Israeli hiker who went missing there, and Israeli teams, including Asraf’s buddies from the army, flew to Kathmandu to help find his body.

Finally, a political bomb shell: Foreign Minister Avigdor Lieberman, who resigned Monday, just quit the coalition negotiations and will become part of the opposition. Yishai is joined by VOI’s political correspondent Raoul Wootliff to discuss the move. They hear from MK Danny Danon, who gets feisty in defense of his party, the Likud. Then Yishai rants about Jimmy Carter.

The Roots of Racism, and the Difference Between the US and Israel

Tuesday, May 5th, 2015

(((CLICK BELOW TO HEAR AUDIO)))

Yishai is joined in-studio by Jerusalem Post op-ed editor Seth Frantzman and editorial page editor Matthew Wagner to discuss the violent protests held by Ethiopian Israelis over the past few days. They talk about the roots of the rage, and the extent of discrimination against Jews in the Jewish state.

Then, Yishai is joined in-studio by Joel Pollak, editor-at-large and in-house counsel for Breitbart.com, to discuss the similarities and differences between the US and Israel. Pollak says that whereas America is based on a philosophy, Israeli society is more ethnic and connected to the land. In the US, people are very mobile, moving around for school and work, and reinvent themselves easily. Pollak also talks about Israel’s growth and the American administration’s Iran gambit.

Yishai is joined by Alan Elsner, vice president for communications at the ultra-liberal Jewish organization J Street, to discuss the future of the two-state solution and the challenges connected with Israeli sovereignty in Jerusalem. Why are Arabs rioting there?

Then, Yishai is joined in-studio by Rabbi Mike Feuer to discuss Second Passover, a bona fide biblical holiday that many people have never heard of. What are the secrets of this holiday? What is the big deal about blasphemy?
