Jewish Press Radio: Biblical Joseph Becomes Real and What of Benjy?


Canada and Israel have a special relationship

Canada and Israel have a special relationship

The Yishai Fleisher Show is Israel’s only English-language FM talk show and it is brought to you in partnership with JewishPress.com

Radio: Yishai in Toronto.  Segment #1 – #2

Before leaving for IDF reserve duty, Yishai put together a great show that begins with a riveting speech, given during Yishai’s Winter 2012 speaking tour, to students of the Community Hebrew Academy of Toronto (CHAT), a Jewish high school in Toronto, Canada.  The speech begins with Yishai discussing his background and the idea of Joseph’s need to be returned to the Land of Israel, even after death.  The concept of visionaries such as Theodor Herzl being enlightened t0 help physically bring the Jewish people back to Israel is presented along with how fasting on Yom Kippur and removing oneself from technology during Shabbat is an amazing form of meditation and reflection.  This segment wraps up with an intense question and answer session led by Yishai for the students in attendance.

Radio: It’s all in threes.  Segment #3 – #4

The final two segments of this week’s show have Yishai presenting an inspiring speech given at Canada Christian College during his Winter 2012 tour.  The speech begins by presenting three popular terms used to describe the Jewish People and how each is involved in the molding of Jewish identity in political, ethnic, and religious terms.  The renaming of Eretz Yisrael to Syria Palestine by conquerors of the Land as an attempt to delegitimize the Jewish claim to the Land is mentioned.  A series of three riveting stories about Moses and his spirit is presented to the audience.  Yishai continues by discussing how the State of Israel has three different objectives in remaining a Jewish state including protecting the Jewish people, becoming an incubator for Jewish culture, and to be a light among the nations.  The speech winds up with Yishai talking about the three principal dangers that are faced by the Jewish people including delegitimization, Jewish division, and most importantly fear.

The Temple Institute posted this video from August 11th, showing how Muslims really act on the Temple Mount while the Israeli police stand by. Islamic behavior like this happens all the time.

Yishai discusses the tide of performers coming to Israel, and the tide of anti-Iran deal Democratic senators rising up.

It takes guts to overcome the anti-Israel bias and to fly in to perform in Israel. But that is exactly what some performers are doing, like pop superstar Mariah Carey, who performed in front of 12,000 fans at Rishon LeZions’s Live Park Amphitheater. Elie Pieprz, Founder of the International Division of the Counsel of Judea & Samaria and VOI’s Knesset Insider Jeremy Saltan join Yishai to discuss the tide of performers coming to Israel, and the tide of anti-Iran deal Democratic senators rising up.

Yishai is joined by David Isaac Simpkins, a convert and former US soldier.

Meet David Issac Simpkins, who spent ten years in the US military, including fighting in Afghanistan, and four years becoming an officer in West Point where he became interested in Judaism and subsequently converted. Hear Simpkins along with Rabbi Kenny Cohen, the founding rabbi of the Young Israel Century City, Los Angeles ( who helped Simpkins convert) tell Yishai about David’s remarkable journey.

Jerusalem Post op-ed editor Seth Frantzman talks with fellow new father Yishai.
