David Wilder, spokesman for the Committee of the Jewish Community of Hebron, reports on the inauguration of the renewed Hebron Heritage Museum, an event attended by dignitaries such as President Reuven Rivlin and Israel’s chief rabbi.

Also, Zeev Orenstein, Director of International Affairs at the City of David Foundation, comments on the Jerusalem Magistrate Court’s decision to throw out a law suit against Jewish land-purchase in eastern Jerusalem.

Then, Dan Groover — a Jerusalem-based French artist whose style has earned him local and international acclaim — joins Yishai in-studio to discuss how art has the power to create positive societal energy; how he portrays Israel’s special story without the kitsch; and how the wave of French immigration to Israel has brought with it a burst of aesthetic energy.

Why is the repressive Saudi King seen as a ‘reformer?’ Dr. Seth Frantzman, op ed editor of the Jerusalem Post, points to Saudi Arabia’s dark record of human-rights abuses and wonders why no one else sees it. Then, should the US be meddling in the Israeli elections? Haaretz reports that the White House is sending four consultants to dethrone PM Benjamin Netanyahu. Yehuda HaKohen, Middle East analyst, and Adam Bellos of the Am Yisrael Foundation, join Yishai in-studio to push back on the claim that US-Israel relations are hunky-dory.

Obama the Punisher, and the Least Boring Banker

Wednesday, January 28th, 2015

(((CLICK BELOW TO HEAR AUDIO)))

The Daily Beast wrote that Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu ‘scandalously accepted a scandalous invitation’ from US Speaker of the House John Boehner without giving the White House proper notification. And now, the Obama Administration will ‘exact a price.’ Elie Pieprz, Director of External Affairs at the Council of Judea and Samaria, and the creator of iVoteIsrael, joins Yishai in-studio to discuss the political feud brewing between the two great allies, Israel and the United States. Who stands to benefit from Netanyahu’s upcoming address to Congress, and who will pay once the dust settles?

Then, Shuey Fogel can be your outsourced CFO and help you with your small to medium business and non-profit. But don’t be fooled, this banker has an amazing life story which includes leading the Jewish community at Columbia University, running camps for Russian Jews in Minsk, working for the Parks Department in his native NYC, fundraising for the amazing Rabbi Grossman of Migdal Ohr, becoming a banker because of a basketball game, and being on the regional council in Gush Etzion. What prompted him to leave the US in search of a life in Israel? And how does he help others make their dreams come true today?

Then, on this week’s Spiritual Cafe with Rabbi Mike Feuer, how can Jews handle anger and teach gratitude? After a terrorist stabbed thirteen Israelis in Tel Aviv, Yishai experiences a moment of rage, but Rabbi Mike helps him process the pain and reach higher consciousness. Plus, why are there so many laws in the Book of Exodus, and can the Jewish people teach the character trait of gratitude to our Biblical cousins living in Arab nations?

Thursday, January 22nd, 2015

Yishai rages against the bloodshed in Tel Aviv and the enraging statements made by EU High Representative Federina Mogherini who called, yet again, for international pressure on Israel to create a Palestinian terror state. Will this ‘cycle of violence’ – that is, bad ideas for the future of the Middle East – ever end? Then, the students of Thrive are in-studio with Yishai! Find out why these young people are excited about Israel, despite the anti-Zionist narratives they have been bombarded by on campus. Thrive offers gap-year students at Hebrew University a chance to explore Israel through weekend retreats, travel experiences, and exposure to prestigious personalities. Finally, Jonathan Feldstein is Director of ‘Heart to Heart,’ the American organization that supports the Jewish State’s ambulance and blood services, Magen David Adom.

The True Jihad and a True American Hero

Tuesday, January 20th, 2015

(((CLICK BELOW TO HEAR AUDIO)))

Why is jihadist terrorism so prevalent? Maybe it has something to do with the world having a hard time naming the problem. If you can’t face the culprit, how can you fight it? Yishai plays the latest rant by Pat Condell that pokes fun at the weakness of the west. Then, this Chabadnik has made aliyah! Lazer Cohen says there is no problem finding work in Israel, rather, it’s all a problem of perception. Finally, in Israel they call him ‘Captain America’: Staff Sgt. Brian Mast is a true hero. A decorated American soldier who lost both legs in Afghanistan, now attends Harvard, works for the US government, and has another child on the way! But in his spare time, this disabled vet flies to Israel to volunteer with the IDF. Why? Because he loves Israel and wants to show his children what it means to stand up for values…
