Yishai talks about yesterday's rocket fire from Gaza, and the explosion surrounding the Rabbi Barry Freundel sentencing. He is joined by Rabbi Susan Silverman (sister of renowned comedienne Sarah Silverman) -- a leader of the "Women of the Wall" movement -- to hear her take on Gaza, the Women of the Wall and the Rabbi Freundel scandal. Then, Yishai is joined by freelance writer Bethany Mandel from the US to hear about her ordeal as a convert with 'peeping Tom' Rabbi Barry Freundel. She recounts providing testimony at the sentencing of Freundel, convicted of several counts of voyeurism, after he was caught having planted a camera in the shower of the mikvah (ritual bath) adjacent to his prominent Washington DC synagogue. She also discusses the effect this has had on Orthodox Judaism.

European Jewry is in trouble, says Yishai, but should all European Jews immigrate to Israel? Yishai is joined in-studio by Zvika Klein, Jewish World correspondent for the NRG news site and the Hebrew weekly Makor Rishon, to discuss the future of the Diaspora, in view of anti-Jewish legislation, such as the ban on circumcisions and kosher slaughter. Then, when the state of Israel was established, Israelis were discouraged from leaving -- so much so that they were not allowed to cast absentee ballots from abroad. That attitude has changed for many reasons, among them the large number of Israelis who leave the country to study and work. Should the law be adjusted to take this into account? Yishai is joined by Avinoam Bar-Yosef, president and founding director of the Jewish People Policy Planning Institute, and formerly the US bureau chief for the Hebrew daily Ma'ariv, to talk about this issue specifically and the state of the Jewish people in general.

Yishai rejects what he sees as the "Israel-is-to-blame" narrative of President Obama's speech at the Adas Israel synagogue in Washington DC. Then, Yishai is joined in-studio by Orthodox Union senior managing director Rabbi Steven Weil and director of leadership development Rabbi Ari Rockoff to discuss the future of American Jewry. They discuss their latest initiative: meeting with 18-year-olds spending a gap year in Israel, to encourage them to involve their counterparts in the US, who have grown distant from their Judaism.

Why does Shavuot (Festival of Weeks or Pentecost) have so many themes running through it? Agriculture, Mount Sinai, the Ten Commandments, the Book of Ruth, King David, the Baal Shem Tov, the consumption of dairy products and more all come together on this holiday, that begins Saturday night. Yishai is joined in-studio by Rabbi Mike Feuer to make sense of it all, ahead of the great "revelation." Then, Yishai is joined in-studio by Nachman and Sruli -- the Solomon Brothers -- who created their own band of bluegrass music, infused with spiritualism and folk rock, influenced by the likes of Bob Dylan and Neil Young. Their special blend of music has gained them numerous TV appearances and rave reviews. Their live performance at VOI will blow you away.

Yishai is joined by 95-year-old Jerusalem resident Dan Nadel, a five-time decorated WWII hero, who led troops in the Battle of the Bulge and in the liberation of France from the Nazis. In honor of VE Day, commemorating the Allied victory over Nazi Germany (marked on May 8), Nadel, tells the tale of fighting across Europe, and eventually fulfilling his Zionist dream. Then, Yishai is joined in-studio by foreign correspondent Anne-Marie O’Connor to talk about her award-winning book, "The Lady in Gold," that chronicles the fight for restitution of Gustav Klimt's iconic "Portrait of Adele Bloch-Bauer," confiscated by the Nazis in Vienna just prior to World War II.

Yishai is joined by political correspondent Raoul Wootliff for a news round-up. Raoul reviews the new seats in Knesset, the old Druze IDF unit being disbanded and PM Netanyahu's latest attempt to restart negotiations, right after declaring that Jerusalem will never be divided. Then, Why is Saudi Arabia getting along with Israel? Could it be because of a four-letter word called Iran? And why is it dissing the US? Yishai is joined by VOI Arab affairs analyst Bassem Eid, who sheds light on Saudi Arabian intentions. Finally, Yishai is joined in-studio by Dr. Haim Asa, one of Israel's leading military strategists, who served as adviser to the Foreign Ministry and as the late prime minister Yitzhak Rabin's national security adviser. The c-author of "Diffused Warfare," he talks about the future of the IDF and Israel's struggle to survive in the Middle East.

Who built and rebuilt the walls of the Holy City over and over again -- and Why? Yishai is taken on a historical journey through Jerusalem with with master tour guide Meir Eisenman for a Jerusalem Day special retrospective. Then, Yishai is joined by Rabbi Shimshon HaKohen Nadel to discuss the Jewish People's eternal connection to Jerusalem, and plays songs of yearning for the Holy City's total redemption. If God chose to make an abode for Himself in the lower world in this particular place -- the embodiment of unity -- why is the world trying so hard to divide (internationalize) it?
