Blizzard in Israel, Yishai on Temple Mount Meets Wakf Official, Baba Sali Yahrtzeit

20130113_093118

(((CLICK BELOW TO HEAR AUDIO)))

Yishai and Malkah kick off this week’s show by talking about the recent blizzard in Israel and the fun the Fleishers had in the Gush Etzion town of Neve Daniel. Reflecting on the Jewish world for the week, Malkah let’s us in on the hippest word in the Netherlands and what it might really mean. Yishai shares the powerful experience of his recent visit up to the Temple Mount in Jerusalem including a personal conversation he had with an official of the Muslim Wakf on potential projects Jews and Arabs can agree on (pictured in the photo). Improving heritage sites is an increasing focus of the Israeli government and may be an area for collaboration and widespread internatioal support. The segment ends with a report from Netivot by Uriah Mosby, on the yahrtzeit of the revered Moroccan sage Rabbi Yisrael Abuhatzeira, popularly known as the Baba Sali.

Why are Arabs rioting there? Then, Yishai is joined in-studio by Rabbi Mike Feuer to discuss Second Passover, a bona fide biblical holiday that many people have never heard of. What are the secrets of this holiday? What is the big deal about blasphemy?

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.

Yishai is joined in-studio by Swedish-Jewish journalist and political consultant Annika Hernroth-Rothstein to talk about what it is like to be so persecuted as a Jew where you live that you apply for asylum in your own country.

Yishai is joined, via phone from Bankok, by Chabad Rabbi Nechemia Wilhelm, who is in touch with Rabbi Chezki Lifshitz and his wife Chani, serving in Nepal. They discuss how Chabad, an organization that provides Jewish services to locals and travelers all over the world, is dealing with the fallout of the massive earthquake and avalanches that have plagued the region. 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!

He says that if the state of Israel is the thesis of Zionism, then the Holocaust is the antithesis, and the days of remembrance for the victims of the Holocaust and the fallen soldiers and victims of terrorism is the synthesis.
