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.

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?

Is a landmark US state senate resolution to combat BDS having a domino effect? On April 21, 2015, Tennessee Governor Bill Haslam became the first elected state official in the US to sign a landmark resolution to confront the anti-Semitic BDS movement. Yishai is joined in-studio by Laurie Cardoza-Moore, the force behind the resolution, to further elaborate. Yishai talks to Temple Mount activist Rabbi Yehuda Glick, who was targeted for assassination six months ago by a terrorist who shot him in the chest four times. This was an attempt to silence Glick's demand for equal rights on the Temple Mount, the holiest place on earth for Jews. Finally, Yishai is joined by RustyBrick CEO Barry Schwartz to talk about Jewish app innovation; the future of smart watches; and to engage in the age-old debate: Android or Apple?

Yishai delves into two issues of intrigue: the Kabbalah and women. The holiday of Lag BaOmer is all about the victory of authentic Jewish culture and the Kabbalah -- the mystical doctrines of the Torah. But what does that really mean? Can someone explain what the Kabbalah actually is? Rabbi Mike Feuer joins Yishai for a peak into the hidden, and inner, planes of Judaism. Then, being a woman today means balancing family and career, leaving self-growth neglected. This was the impetus for the Jewish Women's Renaissance Project, created to give Jewish women a chance to explore Israel, Judaism and themselves, while making friends similarly seeking a meaning-filled life. Yishai is joined in-studio by partnerships director Ariella Milobsky and trip director Tzippy Lieberman, who share their personal stories of growth and redemption, and discuss the that arose from Jewish women's yearning for more.

The Israel Defense Force is not like other armies, says Colonel Richard Kemp, former commander of the British forces in Afghanistan, who spoke at the Israel Law Center's "Towards a New Law of War" conference. Then, why do we light bonfires on the Jewish holiday of Lag BaOmer? Historian and author Rabbi Ken Spiro, senior lecturer and researcher for Aish HaTorah's Discovery Seminars and the JerusalemU, tells Yishai that the victory of Lag BaOmer is the victory of Torah over Roman paganism, and therefore is a continuation of the victory of the Maccabees over the anti-Jewish edicts of the Greeks. Then, Yishai is joined in-studio by Yossi Fraenkel, operations officer of the International Unit at ZAKA -- the Israeli emergency response team that specializes in rescue and body identification and extraction -- to talk about his organization's efforts in Nepal, following the earthquake. Finally, a political bomb shell: Foreign Minister Avigdor Lieberman, who resigned Monday, just quit the coalition negotiations and will become part of the opposition. Yishai is joined by VOI's political correspondent Raoul Wootliff to discuss the move.

Then, Yishai is joined in-studio by Joel Pollak, editor-at-large and in-house counsel for Breitbart.com, to discuss the similarities and differences between the US and Israel.

Yishai is joined in-studio by Tamir Druz, director of Capra Energy Group, an independent energy consulting firm advising different governments, among them Israel's, to answer some key questions. Is natural gas the fuel of choice and why? What about pollution? Is the air in Israel's third largest city, Haifa, really harmful? And why do gas prices keep fluctuating? Then, Yishai is joined via phone by Arjun, a Nepalese national, who describes the situation on the ground in Kathmandu following the earthquake. Finally, Yishai is joined in-studio by Eugene Kontorovich, law professor at Northwestern University and senior fellow at the Kohelet Policy Forum, to discuss how the narrative of Israel's birth has an impact on its future.

Then, Yishai makes an impassioned plea to the next education minister to create "San Remo Day." He says that very few people are aware that April 25, 1920 was crucial in the international legal standing for the establishment of the state of Israel nearly three decades later. Finally, Yishai is joined in-studio by Jerusalem Post op-ed editor Seth Frantzman and editorial page editor Matthew Wagner to discuss the earthquake in Nepal, a place with which Israelis have a special connection.

Yishai is joined in-studio by Ata Farhat, chairman of the Druze Zionist Council, to talk about his community's celebration of Israeli independence. Though of a different religion and culture, the Druze fight in Israel's wars and consider themselves an integral part of the Israeli nation-state. Find out why. Then, Yishai rants about the beauty of Israeli independence. He says that while Israel's enemies paint the Jewish state as foreign to the Middle East landscape, the truth is that there is nothing more organic -- more holistic -- than the Jewish people being back in Judea. Finally, for his "Spiritual Cafe" segment, Yishai is joined by Rabbi Mike Feuer to discuss issues of Jewish statehood. Is there such a thing as "good" post-Zionism, for example? Listen in!
