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.

Bears in a tree

A Monsey park was closed on Sunday, after bears were sighted climbing in the trees.

Poet Erez Biton, who was awarded the Israel Prize for Literature on Yom Ha’Atzmaut, used the occasion to warn against sponsors of the Boycott Israel movement. “Strident voices are being heard in the world including those who are challenging the very existence of the State of Israel,” he said. “There are even those among them […]

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!

‘Zionism in Animation’, aims to tell the story of Zionism in a series of 100 short animated clips, and is the brainchild of Shlomo Blass, head of Rogatka.

Yishai broadcasts a speech delivered by Miriam Peretz, the mother of two fallen IDF soldiers, Uriel and Eliraz, during a “Friends of the IDF” dinner. In her address, she talks about her sacrifice, which she believes is necessary in the fight for the Jewish State. Then, Yishai reads a story he wrote, called “Zikaron” (remembrance), one passage of which is as follows: “In that one moment, I though of gratitude: I am so thankful to you, fallen paratrooper, fallen Jew, fallen brother.” Finally, Yishai is joined in-studio by former MK Dr. Aryeh Eldad, former surgeon-general of the IDF and head of plastic surgery at Hadassah Hospital in Ein Karem. 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.

Amazing new NBN video on Olim who love Israel. Why do YOU love Israel?

Yishai takes the occasion of Israel’s Remembrance Day for Fallen Soldiers and Victims of Terrorism — and last week’s Holocaust Remembrance Day — to express his view of Jewish victimhood. He says that while we commemorate Jewish and Israeli victims, the ideology of Jew-hatred is alive and well. Then, Yishai is joined by Shlomo Blass, the director of Rogatka, a studio that creates short, pro-Israel videos. Among the founders of Caroline Glick’s satirical Latma series, that poked fun at the Left, he is now launching a new project: “Zionism in Animation” — 100 short videos on different aspects of Zionism, including important historical moments and figures. Finally, Yishai is treated to a cameo appearance by VOI’s Pinchas Orban, who talks about the rationality behind belief in God.

Yishai is joined in-studio by Arab affairs analyst Bassem Eid to talk about the Temple Mount, the Holocaust and the Arab concern for dignity over identity. Then, Yishai is joined in-studio by David Bederman, coach to successful CEOs and entrepreneurs, to talk about Israeli independence. He says that Israel does not have a PR problem, but rather an identity crisis. Finally, Yishai is joined in-studio by Jerusalem Post editorial page editor Matthew Wagner to discuss the question of the peculiar phenomenon of the Left being in a global coalition with Islamic fundamentalists?

Well worth watching to the very end…
