(((CLICK BELOW TO HEAR AUDIO)))

Is there any way to win the war for the hearts and minds of the North American campus student? Some people think they can put up a fight! Zeev Ben Shachar, who served in an elite IDF unit, attended Harvard, is now Director of Israel Education at Jerusalem U., overseeing a team creating online courses, films and educational curricula to connect over 16,000 North American high school students, college students and adults with Israeli history, society, and politics. Then, Alyssa Gabay, currently a freshman at the University of Maryland, and Albert Kohn, freshman at both Columbia University and the Jewish Theological Seminary are passionate Zionists running for the New Zionist Vision slate of the World Zionist Organization in elections for the 37th annual World Zionist Congress.

Friday, January 9th, 2015

(((CLICK BELOW TO HEAR AUDIO)))

Who are the Kurds? They are Muslim but moderate, and they like Israel–relatively speaking of course. Lazar Berman is a News Editor at Times of Israel and a specialist in Kurdish affairs. He joins Yishai in-studio to tell the amazing and hidden tale of largest stateless minority in the world.

Then, on Spiritual Cafe with Rabbi Mike Feuer, here comes the Burning Bush that no one else sees but Moses. Moses answers the call and comes to the rescue of the Jews, even though at first he doesn’t want to. Before the Jewish people can have their exodus, they first have to get down and dirty in Egypt.

The Prospects for Jewish Survival: With Arabs or in the Diaspora?

Wednesday, January 7th, 2015

(((CLICK BELOW TO HEAR AUDIO)))

Can Jewish and Muslim narratives co-exist? Eliyahu McLean is the founder of Jerusalem Peacemakers and the Abrahamic Reunion, which both focus on nurturing coexistence in the Holy Land. McLean’s multi-cultural outlook helps him merge Jewish and Muslim narratives which are seemingly on a collision course. Then, is America the final Diaspora? Rabbi Ken Spiro joins Yishai in-studio to understand the Biblical character Joseph, and his archetypal exile leadership model. But this model has an inherent pitfall: it never lasts! Rabbi Spiro applies the Joseph leadership to analyze the American Jewish experience.

He is the founder of Insight to Israel and Hersheys for Heroes – bringing Hershey bars to Israeli soldiers with a message from America – we are with you! Yishai& Michael also discuss American aliyah and the anti-Israel media bias. Then, Uri Regev is a lawyer and rabbi and civil rights and religious pluralism advocate. Currently Regev serves as the President and CEO of ‘Hiddush – For Freedom of Religion and Equality,’ a trans-denominational nonprofit organization aimed at promoting religious freedom and equality in Israel.

Have you ever wanted to travel the world and visit far-flung destinations, but were limited because you could not find Kosher food in Zanzibar? Well, now you travel with Kosher food, with a prayer quorum, and with high-class! David Walles of Eddie’s Kosher Travel (www.KosherTravelers.com) joins Yishai in-studio and takes him on a virtual journey to Alaska, South America, and of course, home to the land of Israel, where amazing Jewish Holiday vacations await.

Then, on this week’s Spiritual Cafe with Rabbi Mike Feuer, the amazingly rich stories of the Tenth of Tevet, a fast day that weaves together the Siege of Jerusalem, the death of the prophet Ezra, the translation of the Bible into Greek, and the day that Israel’s Chief Rabbinate has designated as a general mourning day for relatives of Holocaust victims to observe traditional practices for the deceased.

Deterrence, Vision, Dialogue, and Narrative

Tuesday, December 30th, 2014

(((CLICK BELOW TO HEAR AUDIO)))

Baruch Widen, alternative peace activist and proponent of interfaith dialogue joins Yishai to discuss the lack of deterrence, that is, Israel toughness, against the jihad. Widen also says there’s a lack of vision to give hope to moderate Arabs. Also, why is pro-Israel Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-SC) fighting on the wrong side? Because he has his hands tied! Then, JoniVersity is ‘possibly the smuggest atheist on YouTube and undoubtedly the smartest and most good looking.’ He is fighting the anti-Israel social media monster that is eating up young minds throughout the world and claims Israel is losing the narrative war because there aren’t more people like him out there.
