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.
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. 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.
