Rabbi Mike Feuer, educational director of Beit Midrash Sulam Yaakov, joins Yishai to discuss 'Va'etchanan,' this week's Torah portion. Yishai reflects on an extremely difficult experience he had yesterday — enduring verbal abuse and humiliation, as he attempted to visit the Temple Mount. Then, in the light of the treatment of Jews at Judaism’s holiest site, the demolitions at Beit El and the Gay Pride March, Yishai discusses with Rabbi Feuer the repetition in “Va’etchanan” of the 10 Commandments and the iconic phrases that crop up throughout the portion, including the line that embodies the core principals of Judaism — the “Shema.” The two also consider the greatest struggles facing modern-day Israel and 21st-century Jewry.

Rabbi Mottle Wolfe joins Yishai to discuss the contours of the religious-secular divide in the Jewish state. The two show hosts talk about the phenomenon of the very secular Tel Aviv being a mere five kilometers away from the ultra-Orthodox Bnei Brak. The former celebrates Israel Independence Day, but doesn’t fast on the day that marks the loss of Jewish sovereignty 2,000 years ago. The latter observes the religious fast, but does not take part in the modern celebrations of statehood. They envision a way to move the process of building the third Jewish commonwealth forward.

Regavim has some good stuff about illegal Arab (and EU) construction in Judea and Samaria. They just don’t seem to grasp that they need to publish it all in English first, and not as an afterthought. If you don’t see the English subtitles automatically, you can activate them in the video’s closed caption settings.
