For Yaffa, the Jewish principle of middah k’neged middah was a crucial element in her belief that Judaism is the truth. Another inspiring episode of Leap of Faith you don’t want to miss!

The next holocaust is a very loaded topic. It is up to us to see the signs, signals, and trends, and then immediately act in earnest! One can't 'beat' or win, against the wave of antisemitism. History has shown us this, and has taught us that the only real way to survive and live in safety is to move, and Israel is the only home for the Jewish People, and the safest place to be. Tamar dishes it out and pleads for her brothers and sisters to see the signs, and realize that not even in the academic world, on college campuses, can a Jew be free.

Rod Reuven Dovid Bryant and Jerry Gordon bring back Gil Hoffman, pollical analyst and columnist of the Jerusalem Post to assess the political dynamics of the first historic Israeli do-over election on September 17th. The April 9th election failed to result in Bibi forming a ruling coalition because he couldn’t get Avigdor Liberman of Yisrael Beiteinu to join or even Labor party leader Gabbay to join. Hoffman’s bottom line is that it will be hard for Netanyahu to reach the required 61 Knesset seats to form a ruling coalition. There is the reforming of the United Arab -Balad party list with currently 9 seats in the polls to foil a possible ruling coalition.
