Ashdod’s been taking a beating this past week from all the missiles falling from Gaza.

So, I thought I’d share with you something fun about the city.

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.

Rav Bina in Beit Shemesh

Rav Bina’s Shavuot message and an update on his grandson who was injured in a terror attack.


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.

An American conservative talk radio show host, a Times of Israel blogger and Jerusalem Post editors talk with Yishai about the issues of the day.

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?

“You should fight them even if they do not fight you.”

In the lead-up to Jerusalem Day, Yishai hosts three relevant guests: one American, another Israeli and a third Palestinian. Listen in and get inspired!

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?

Question: Should we wash our hands in the bathroom with soap and water, or by pouring water from a vessel with handles three times, alternating hands? I have heard it said that a vessel is used only in the morning upon awakening. What are the rules pertaining to young children? What is the protocol if no vessel is available? Additionally, may we dry our hands via an electric dryer?
