Yishai is joined by alternative peace activist Yehuda HaKohen to discuss Israel’s national anthem. Hatikva, Israel’s national anthem is holy, but is it dated? Is the message out of touch? Can Israel become more Jewish while embracing the non-Jewish world?
Yishai presents an interview about the situation in Israel he gave with Rabbi Mottle Wolfe on his Inward Bound Show shortly before going live with the Yishai Fleisher Show on November 20. Yishai and Rabbi Wolfe have an inspiring and insightful conversation that should not be missed, despite the effort of Hamas terrorists, who interrupted the broadcast due to a rocket attack. At 18:29, Yishai changes gears and presents an interview with alternative peace activist Yehuda HaKohen. Together they further discuss the situation between Israel and Hamas, including HaKohen’s view of the situation and potential solutions for it.
To commemorate the passing of Former Israeli Prime Minister Yitzhak Shamir, Alternative Peace Activist Yehuda HaKohen joins Yishai. They discuss the roots that Shamir rose from and how he dedicated his life to ensuring that Jews were represented and remained in the Land of Israel. Do not miss this moving tribute to an iconic Jewish and Israeli leader.
Yishai and Yehuda HaKohen (alternative peace activist and educator) discuss the ideas underpinning the future of peace in the Middle East and review the history. Yehuda has a deep understanding of history, and is a brilliant and insightful commentator on Israeli/Arab co-existence and the path forward. In the last section of this audio Yishai discusses the lesson of Moses and his choice to help the girls at the well in Midian - what can we learn from this story about leadership?
