The ‘Song of the Creator’ and Today’s ‘Pascal Lamb’

14 Nisan 5775 – April 3, 2015
Jim Long is a Noahide, a Torah-believing gentile, a filmmaker and publisher, and author of "Riddle of Exodus." He helps get the "philosophical chametz" surrounding the Exodus out of our collective closets. He joins Yishai in-studio, together with Rabbi Michael Shelomo Bar-Ron, author of the just-released "Song of the Creator - Revealing the Super-Intelligent Design of the Pentateuch," which posits that the Five Books of Moses is a perfectly symmetrical document the likes of which could only be written by God. Then, Rabbi Shimshon HaKohen Nadel joins Yishai in-studio to talk about a special mock Pascal Lamb Offering ceremony in Jerusalem he attended along with thousands of other people, among them animal-rights protesters. Listen in!

Where was God When Hurricane Sandy Struck?

17 Heshvan 5773 – November 1, 2012
What was G-d thinking when he sent Hurricane Sandy and what could have been its purpose? In truth, I don’t much care, because our role as humans is not to understand G-d’s plan in the face of horror and tragedy, but to challenge God and demand that human life always be protected and preserved. Did I say demand? Yes, humanity has rights before God. We are His children. He commanded us to preserve and promote life always. “Choose life,” Moses orders the Israelite nation in God’s name, on the last day of His life. And the Creator must abide by the same dictates He expects His creatures to.

Did You Know This About Mormonism?

9 Heshvan 5773 – October 24, 2012
"The Book of Mormon clearly states that Nephi built a temple modeled upon the temple of Solomon upon arriving in the Americas (2 Nephi 5:16). In addition, the Book of Mormon says that other temples were built in the Americas (see 3 Nephi 11:1 and Helaman 3:14)...the Israelites in the Americas were trying to faithfully follow the law of Moses."

Two Old Men

26 Tishri 5773 – October 11, 2012
As the men danced around below us, I had a lot of time to notice the people who were there - many are friends and neighbors of mine; children and grandchildren of people I know. The rabbi that is so loved in this community; a woman who regularly collects food for needy people. This one has a child who is ill; a boy with Down Syndrome who is so loved and cherished. This family has more boys than I can count; this one just had a daughter who got married. She's a grandmother now. Her son just got engaged. That one there is married to her over there. And on and on - a community of people.

Finding Moses (Part I)

5 Tishri 5773 – September 21, 2012
As the year draws to a close we have the book of Deuteronomy before us week after week, reviewing many of the halachos and reminding us of our harrowing trek through the wilderness. Moshe Rabbeinu is the stern narrator, guiding us to the very edge of the Promised Land, a final step he will never take. He pleads with God to let him enter the Land to no avail. Finally, “Moses, servant of Hashem, died there, in the land of Moab, by the mouth of Hashem. And He buried him in the depression, in the land of Moab, opposite Beth-peor, and no one knows his burial place to this day. (Deut. 34: 5).” We complete our reading of the Torah with tears in our eyes for our faithful teacher, prophet and leader, whose life seems to end in angst and frustration. What was the inner life of our brave and tenacious leader?

Selichot

19 Elul 5772 – September 5, 2012
However remote the prospect of acquittal, a Jew must never give up. God commands us to challenge indictment with prayer. And the rabbis urge us to confront sentencing with hunger strikes. And so, the Midrash tells us, when Moses stood before God, at a loss for words with which to defend the sin of the golden calf, God Himself donned a tallit, took to the prayer stand, and showed Moses how to pray and what to say:

Depending On A Wise Sister

8 Tammuz 5772 – June 27, 2012
