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.”

Finally, has PM Netanyahu fallen into a trap?

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.”

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.

Finally, Executive Vice Chairman of the Conference of Presidents of Major American Jewish Organizations Malcolm Hoenlein joins Yishai in-studio for an exclusive interview about the state of affairs of the state of Israel.
