Straight from the heart of Jerusalem comes the only English talk show on broadcast radio in the State of Israel (106.5FM). Yishai and Malkah Fleisher, two well-known internet radio personalities, made the leap to broadcast radio on the new Galey Yisrael station in Israel blazing a trail to create content for the growing segment of the Israeli public that speaks English. Here at JewishPress.com we are proud to present this week’s Yishai Fleisher Show online for listening and for download in cooperation with Galey Yisrael radio.

Segment #1: Celebration and Fasting

Yishai and Malkah discuss counter culture Chanukah versus Christmas and New Years and Yishai describes his new idea for a national Chanukah celebration. The post Chanukah period in the Jewish calendar shifts into a time of difficulty and darkness in Jewish history. The roots of major disasters may be less obvious, Yishai shines a light on some of the early steps into trouble. What are the lessons for today from the history of the fast day of the 10th of Tevet Fast Day (Jan. 5th, 2012)? Determined not to let the segment end on a low note, Malkah raises spirits with a list of the most amazing scientific discoveries of 2011.

 

Segment #2: Israeli Pride for Jews and Arabs

Yishai and Baruch Widen (interfaith dialogue expert) delve into the real life of Jewish/Arab coexistence in Israel. Yishai’s car gets smashed with a rock in Jerusalem with the intention of theft not terror. This adventure leads Baruch to think about how to bring pride and positivity to the life of all youth in the country – Arabs and Jews! What place do non-Jewish citizens have in the military forces of the Jewish State? Arabs have served with distinction in the Israeli Defense Forces for years and there are increasing numbers of proud Israeli Muslims serving and proudly saluting the flag of the Jewish State. Listen in to hear some good news and feel the excitement of hanging out with Israeli Airforce Wingmen! Finally, Yishai and Baruch share their thoughts on the “The Best Plans” alternative peace conference and discuss how to focus on what the real problems are while holding on to the positive roots of future changes.

 

Segment #3: Beit Shemesh Conflicts & Iran Ups the Heat

Beit Shemesh, located in the foothills between Tel Aviv and Jerusalem, in a warm mixed community has been the location of social conflict between different Jewish groups. The media has raised the visibility of the local conflict to a highly followed national issue. Yishai discusses the events with journalist Shmuel Sokol who is following the story closely and provides an excellent, eye-opening explanation of the situation.

 

Segment #4: Fighting for the Anglo Vote in Israel

Yisrael Beitenu is a political party that has built up support in a number of demographics with emphasis on the Russian immigrant population. Now Yisrael Beitenu is trying to grow in the sphere of the Anglo voters. In this segment, Yishai describes this aspect of Israeli internal politics and then takes us behind the scenes to hear Danny Ayalon’s speech at the first ever Yisrael Beitenu Chanukah Party for Anglo Israeli voters.

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.

Their discussion begins at 6:20 (they switch back and forth a little bit between Hebrew and English).

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.

Upset at the discrimination against religious Jews, one young boy launched a civil rights protest at the entrance to the Temple Mount.

Yishai rejects what he sees as the “Israel-is-to-blame” narrative of President Obama’s speech at the Adas Israel synagogue in Washington DC. 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.
