Wednesday, February 18th, 2015

(((CLICK BELOW TO HEAR AUDIO)))

Dr. Michael Doran is an American expert on the international politics of the Middle East, a Senior Fellow at the Hudson Institute and a former Deputy Assistant Secretary of Defense at the Pentagon. His recent article in Mosaic Magazine, “Obama’s Secret Iran Strategy,” has caused a firestorm in the policy world. He joins Yishai from Washington to discuss the US president’s attempt at detente with the Iranian regime, and the brouhaha surrounding PM Benjamin Netanyahu’s upcoming speech before Congress.

Then, Nachman Rosenberg, the former executive vice president of Tzohar, an organization calling for reform in the Israeli rabbinate, joins Yishai in-studio. He says that Israel’s religious establishment may actually be destroying the Jewish character of the state, claiming that it has developed into a dysfunctional government monopoly that poses no less of a strategic threat than Iran.

Voice of Israel’s Bassem Eid joins Yishai in-studio to discuss Jordan’s challenges — two million refugees and serious problems with ISIS and the Muslim Brotherhood — and the goings-on in Yemen. Who are the Houthis? What are they doing in Yemen? And are they an Iranian proxy?

Then, Mark Russ Federman, the author of “Russ & Daughters: Reflections and Recipes from the House that Herring Built,” joins Yishai in-studio to tell the story of how one Manhattan store lasted for an entire century in the same location, created a craving for traditional schmaltz herring — and then merged it with Swedish tastes to create a sensation.

Yishai asks what has happened to masculinity in Israel, and why ‘maleness’ is in retreat. Journalist and author Orit Arfa, who recently penned a piece about the phenomenon of women opting to freeze their eggs, joins Yishai in-studio to discuss this societal crisis.

Then, why does the Bible link the prohibitions of witchcraft and bestiality? And how does the Bible’s lack of liberalism jibe with modernity? Rabbi Mike Feuer joins Yishai in-studio to discuss the Biblical view of societal norms and responsibilities — and the Jewish People’s obligation to rid the world of evil.

Thursday, February 12th, 2015

(((CLICK BELOW TO HEAR AUDIO)))

Author and columnist Shmuel Rosner joins Yishai to argue the case he made in his latest New York Times piece, “Don’t Speak to Congress, Mr. Netanyahu.” Rosner claims, “Instead of being an opportunity to seriously address the risks of Iran’s nuclear program, such a speech would scuttle the discussion.”

Then, is the Jewish charity to which you are donating money healthy? Shuey Fogel, director of Fogel CFO and Financial Services, joins Yishai on the ‘Financial Sense’ segment of the show to answer this question.

Finally, has PM Netanyahu fallen into a trap? Dr. Seth Frantzman, oped editor of the Jerusalem Post, joins Yishai in-studio to discuss the personal enmity between Netanyahu and President Obama; the timeline of the current “Congressional speech” crisis; and the many people who have come out of the woodwork to attack the Israeli leader.

Ann Hood is a best-selling author of 13 novels, including “The Knitting Circle,” “The Obituary Writer,” and her memoir, “Comfort: a Journey Through Grief.”

She shares her fascinating life tale with Yishai: how she started reading at the age of four; how she wrote her first story when she was angry at her grandmother; and how she ultimately became a writer — by filling notebooks during breaks as a TWA flight attendant.

Then, pioneered by MK Rabbi Binyamin Elon, the Israel Allies Foundation (IAF) works with the US Congress and parliaments around the world to mobilize political support for Israel, based on Judeo-Christian values. IAF Executive Director Willem Griffioen and Deputy Director Joseph Sabag join Yishai in-studio to talk about their endeavor.

The Netanyahu Speech Debacle and Tikkun Olam in the Knesset

Monday, February 9th, 2015

(((CLICK BELOW TO HEAR AUDIO)))

Is a breach of protocol really behind the Obama-Netanyahu rift over a speech before Congress in March? Should Israeli Ambassador to the US Ron Dermer be fired, as some pundits have argued?

VOI editor and Israel Hayom columnist Ruthie Blum and Alex Traiman, Middle East analyst and JNS Jerusalem correspondent, join Yishai in-studio to discuss the huge controversy surrounding the issue.

Then, Yesh Atid party MK Dr. Aliza Lavie, author of “A Jewish Woman’s Prayer Book” — which received the 2008 National Jewish Book Award — talks to VOI about her work. Focusing on gender and multiculturalism in Judaism, and the role of media in politics and religion, she tells Yishai about her fight for Tikkun Olam (making the world a better place) efforts in the Knesset, to help Jewish law meet the modern reality of the Jewish State.
