    This was awesome’!!!!!! Hate that this is even a question ! Yasher Koach Rabbi!!

  2. Wish there were more options out there than Jdate, which sucks. As this is so important to Jewish continuity, why are no resources being put towards getting members of the tribe together?

  3. Romeo Singh says:

    GOD BLESS ISRAEL…

  4. RABI DON T KNOW A THING ABOUT LOVE.LOVE IS NOT ABOUT IF YOU ARE A JEW OR NOT.I AM A CHRISTIAN AND I LOVE A JEW,IS THAT A SIN?

  5. Dean Petree says:

    Sure Jews should marry Jews, why not….

  6. Well I like the idea, but jewish community needs to grow in that communities can get together and meet people. On the other hand, there is always a mother telling her son, “She’s pretty and a nice Jewish girl” and to the daughter, “He’s smart, good looking, and jewish” with a big grin. But, some how they look at this as a set up, when it’s really – hey check them out, you never know 😉 We love our kids and want them happy:) and when you don’t have to deal with religious issues it’s so much easier.

  7. Their should marry who ever their want…this is the 21rst century…not the Middle Ages…all these tribal rules divide people…same as the Muslims with their silly rules !

  8. Daniel Siad says:

    Stupid ! You are creating racism just like Arabs , why just not believe in Love you marry who ever you fall in Love with…there is one God the same for all universe.

  9. It’s in the bible people read.

  10. I am just saying you can marry who ever you want and who ever you love. I am not racist or making a rule I am saying that when you get married it is easier to marry someone with the same religious beliefs. I say this because when you marry a person who has the same religious convictions as yourself it is much easier to raise children, celebrate religious holidays, financial issues, etc. If Christians marry Christians is easy you both eat same foods, celebrate holidays etc. If Jewish religion and married to Christian it is hard, to raise Children, kosher/non-kosher, holidays Hannakah/Christmas, let alone decide on what day is the day if rest. All this doesn’t even matter if you don’t have any religious convictions, but if you do just think about it- if you plan on getting married once in a life time and for 50 years or more and you have religious convictions either Buddhist, Hindu, Christian, etc- it’s easier less stress if you marry someone of the same faith. Majority not all Mormons, Catholics, and Muslims still do practice this.

  11. Is it really possible for Jews and non-Jews to really be in a true union? I wonder if our motivations and standards are what they should be.

  12. If faith is important then it needs to be shared in marriage, IMHO. But when we are young and dumb we don’t always make wise choices according to our faith and sometimes suffer for it.

  13. Amen ! Still on Jdate, grrrrr.

  14. jews should convert nonjews!

  15. jews should convert nonjews!

    I am a Jewish man married to a woman who was raised Catholic but who is essentially an atheist. However, we are raising our two daughters within the Jewish faith and have this reflects in our home. Although not religious she serves an active part in synagogue life where my daughters are concerned. I think you can marry a non-Jew and still live a Jewish life and instill Jewish heritage and values in our children.

  17. I have to say that I think one of the major causes of loss of Jewish identity among children of couples in which one person is Jewish and the other is not, is that there’s so much ostracizing in the community of both the Jewish parent and the resulting child. We should encourage Jews to marry other Jews, but treating people who marry out as if they’re traitors isn’t helpful, nor is making comments like “how could a Jew and a non-Jew truly love each other?” which there’s a fair bit of in here.

    A better solution is to outreach to the resulting children and make sure that their Jewish identity remains strong, rather than being insulting to their parents.

    Personally, my children are as halachically Jewish as any of the commenters here, my husband is atheist and so not a member of any other religion, and I am sending them to day school and raising them in the Jewish faith. My kids will likely end up with more knowledge and passion for Judaism than quite a few people who consider themselves more “pure” or doubt that I could love my husband.

  18. …elementary my dear… 😉

We ran this a year ago, but the classics are timeless.


The Yishai Fleisher Show is back! This week, the beloved Spiritual Cafe series with Rabbi Mike Feuer on the Torah portion of “Ki Tetze” – going out to war. Yishai and Rav Mike deal with the complex dichotomy of the commandment to retain the consciousness of both hate for Amalek and compassion for the other & Biblical divorce between man and women but not between man and God. A must-hear for your Shabbat preparation!

The Temple Institute posted this video from August 11th, showing how Muslims really act on the Temple Mount while the Israeli police stand by. Islamic behavior like this happens all the time. After watching this, does anyone believe the Muslims actually consider the Temple Mount holy, or is this only about preventing Jews from praying […]

Matisyahu answered all the antisemites and BDS supporters at the Sunsplash Festival with his rendition of “If I Forget Thee O’ Jerusalem.”

Yishai discusses the tide of performers coming to Israel, and the tide of anti-Iran deal Democratic senators rising up.

It takes guts to overcome the anti-Israel bias and to fly in to perform in Israel. But that is exactly what some performers are doing, like pop superstar Mariah Carey, who performed in front of 12,000 fans at Rishon LeZions’s Live Park Amphitheater. Elie Pieprz, Founder of the International Division of the Counsel of Judea & Samaria and VOI’s Knesset Insider Jeremy Saltan join Yishai to discuss the tide of performers coming to Israel, and the tide of anti-Iran deal Democratic senators rising up.

Yishai is joined by David Isaac Simpkins, a convert and former US soldier.

Meet David Issac Simpkins, who spent ten years in the US military, including fighting in Afghanistan, and four years becoming an officer in West Point where he became interested in Judaism and subsequently converted. Hear Simpkins along with Rabbi Kenny Cohen, the founding rabbi of the Young Israel Century City, Los Angeles ( who helped Simpkins convert) tell Yishai about David’s remarkable journey.

Jerusalem Post op-ed editor Seth Frantzman talks with fellow new father Yishai.

They discuss the fact that Seth’s wife is Ethiopian, and talk about that community’s special customs surrounding childbirth — and how they reflect the state of Israeli society. Also, Seth reports on the Jerusalem Wine Festival — at least whatever he remembers of it from his alcohol haze.

Sephardi Jews begin saying Selichot prayers in the beginning of the month of Elul. Here’s a video from 2013 of what the prayers looked like at the Kotel. Powerful.

Arab affairs analyst Bassem Eid discusses the ever-changing landscape of the conflict-ridden region with Yishai, sitting in for Dan Diker.
ISIS is attempting to stop tourism from flourishing in the Sinai, a goal towards which Egyptian President Abdel Fattah el-Sisi continues to work. Meanwhile, Syrian President Bashar al-Assad is forced to accept a much-reduced territory as his kingdom, as millions of Syrians run for safer havens.
