Yishai makes a passionate plea for Jerusalem's honor. When you deny or disrespect the Holy City, he says, you are dishonoring God and casting doubt on the story of the Jewish people and Israel. Then, Yishai is joined in-studio by VOI political correspondent Raoul Wootliff, to discuss the annual Herzliya Conference, the most prestigious gathering of policy analysts from Israel and abroad. Raoul plays some interviews he conducted from the scene, and discusses burning issues, such as BDS, the future of minorities in Israel and the question of a two-state solution. Finally, Yishai is joined by Rabbi Mike Feuer to discuss this week's Torah portion, which they say is particularly relevant to the era in which we are living. Why did the best leaders of a generation reject the land of Israel?

Eugene Kontorovich, Professor of Law at Northwestern University and head of the International Department at the Kohelet Policy Forum joins Yishai to help unearth the roots of BDS and the US Supreme Court's rejection of Jerusalem. Why does America not recognize even western Jerusalem as part of Israel? Does BDS have anything to do with the Green Line or the West Bank? Then, isn't it interesting that campuses that pass BDS resolutions immediately report a rise in antisemitic incidents? Yishai talks with Tammi Rossman-Benjamin, a faculty member at the University of California, Santa Cruz, and founder of the AMCHA Initiative, a non-profit organization that combats anti-Semitism on college campuses.

Yishai is joined by his wife and fellow broadcaster, Malkah Fleisher, to discuss the U.S Supreme Court decision that struck down a law that would recognize Jerusalem as a city in Israel on passports. Once again, according to Yishai, Israel's great friend comes up short and lines up on the side of the Jewish State's detractors. Then, Brigadier General (Res.) Gal Hirsch is the Deputy Commander of the IDF's Depth Command, Founder and Chairman of Defensive-Shield Holdings, and has served in various command positions in anti-terror, commando and counter-terrorism units. He joins Yishai to talk about the growth of global jihad, his passion for strong Israeli leadership, and overcoming and recovering from personal injury.

The Ramon Crater in Israel’s south is the world’s largest “makhtesh- 40 kilometers long, between 2-10 kilometers wide and 500 meters deep.

Shlomo Riskin, chief rabbi and co-founder of the Judean settlement of Efrat, rubs Israel's Chief Rabbinate the wrong way. His liberal stance on conversion, women's involvement in religious rites and other issues is now causing the rabbinate to threaten not to renew his contract, as he has turned 75. A slew of rabbis and public officials have come out in support of his continued tenure. Riskin joins Yishai to discuss his relations with the Chief Rabbinate and his positions on Jewish law. Then, in this week's Torah portion in the Book of Numbers, "Naso," God gives direction to the Jewish priests on how to bless the Jewish people: "May God light His face unto you." But does God really have a face? In preparation for Shabbat, Rabbi Mike Feuer joins Yishai to discuss the Priestly blessing, the Nazarite and the seemingly repetitive offerings of the tribe leaders.

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.
