Yishai is joined by his wife, Malkah, to recap the Fleisher family's voting adventures and marvel at Israel's youth, who are deeply involved in the political process. Then, Haaretz blogger and TLV1 broadcaster Allison Kaplan Sommer joins Yishai to discuss the voting patterns of Israel's Coastal Plain, traditionally a more liberal bloc. Finally, a must-hear interview with Aida Touma-Sliman, the former head of the International Department of the Communist Party of Israel. Recently resigned from her post as editor-in-chief of Al-Ittihad (an Israeli daily Arabic newspaper) to run in the fifth -- and realistic -- slot of the Joint Arab List, she bares some tough issues that divide Muslim-Arabs and Jews in Israel.

How many people came to the nationalist rally? Why was Jerusalem such a central issue? Why did the prime minister himself take the time to show up? Yishai is joined in-studio by VOI political correspondent Raoul Wootliff to reflect on the right-wing demonstration in Tel Aviv on Sunday night. Also, why has kissing the Mezuzah become a political issue? Listen to Yishai rant against those in the post-Zionist camp who make fun of traditional Israelis, portraying them as boorish and backward. Then, hear the voices of the people of Israel -- some pro, some con -- who came out to demonstrate on Sunday night. Yishai was on the scene to provide a feel for the real mood in Israel.

We’re not endorsing Netanyahu. A vote for Bennett is definitely just as good. But when we saw this Chuck Norris video, we knew had to put it up (or else).

Yishai raises the issue of Kurdistan Regional Government President Masoud Barzani talking about the honor to fight ISIS. Yishai wonders why Israel does not use that kind of language when fighting jihadists. Also, Yishai asks why Iran's supreme leader thinks that the open letter from Republican senators signals "disintegration" in Washington. Then, Knesset Insider Jeremy Saltan joins Yishai to explain the latest Israeli election polls, the swing towards the Zionist Union party and why he says that PM Benjamin Netanyahu will probably end up being the next PM. Finally, on Spiritual Cafe: Rabbi Mike Feuer joins Yishai to talk Torah. Why did the Jewish people turn to the Golden Calf, and what is meaning of the incomprehensible commandment of the Red Heifer, which purifies from the energy of death and brings us into the Temple in Jerusalem.

I came across this practical, yet amusing video on how to making your house kosher for Pesach. It’s in Hebrew with English subtitles. Well worth watching, whether you know how to make your house kosher, or not yet.

Did the courageous speech of PM Netanyahu, who stood up on a world stage and proclaimed that an Iran deal is dangerous, provide Republican senators with the strength to draft and address a letter to the Iranian regime, undercutting President Obama's plans? Why did Jordan's King Abdullah blame Israel, once again, for regional instability?And who is really dividing Jerusalem? Also, what was American comedian and radio host Joe Piscopo doing at the Voice of Israel? Yishai gives the answers. Then, Kenneth L. Marcus, president and general counsel of the Louis D. Brandeis Center for Human Rights Under Law, and author of the award-winning "Jewish Identity and Civil Rights in America" -- and Paul Miller, executive director of the Salomon Center, who wrote an article about anti-Semitism on college campuses -- join Yishai to discuss the dark truth about Jew-hatred at American universities.

It’s Purim and Iran’s planning nuclear genocide against Israel. This might be an appropriate Video of the Day. On the other hand, it might not be an appropriate Video of the Day too. It’s tough to tell on Purim.

Across Eastern Europe, more than a million Jews were killed by Nazi paramilitary death squads called "Einsatzgruppen," and their bodies were thrown into mass graves. Many of these grave sites remained unmentioned and untouched for decades. On the Fast of Esther, Father Desbois joins Yishai to convey a message of Jewish strength. Then, VOI's Binyamin Nakonechny joins Yishai in-studio to tell stories and play music in preparation for the Purim holiday -- and in keeping with the verse from the Book of Esther: "The Jews had light and gladness and joy and honor."
