Is Israel going to a fourth round of elections? Malkah Fleisher joins Yishai to figure it out, to get ready for Hanukkah and a potential lockdown, reject Esav’s kiss, and read listener emails! Then, Weekly Bible Study from the Holy Land – the Torah portion of “VaYishlach – with Rav Mike Feuer – on the inner struggle between Jacob and Israeli and the tension between Exile and Redemption.

Eve Harow and her stream of thought about the week that was; two Covid-19 swabs, a nuclear scientist wiped off the planet, cleansing rain at the Dead Sea and the long awaited scrubbing of an antiquated law on land rights in Judea and Samaria. Eve won’t be eating spongy donuts in DC next week but she enjoyed the Shilo wine that washed down lamb at a real dinner set up for a virtual one. And did you know that the Hashmonaim made ritual baths a centerpiece of their ethnic drive to purify Judea of paganism?
All that in 23 minutes. Be well, everyone.

On today’s Israel Uncensored with Josh Hasten, Josh discusses the demise of top Iranian nuclear scientist Moshen Fakhrizadeh this past Friday. While many realize that the world has a little less evil in it, as someone dedicated to blowing Israel off the map was taken out (no country has taken responsibility till now), there are those including the EU who condemned the killing. Also on the show, your emails along with the rest of the top stories from Israel.

It is not every day that you get to speak with a legend, much less interview one. Here are some precious words I had with the Alter Rebbe of Jewish History, Rabbi Berel Wein. We touch on the nature of history, the Jewish people, the experience of salvation and much more.

Few images are as iconic as Jacob’s dream of a ladder connecting Heaven and Earth in Biblical Beit El. Malkah Fleisher joins Yishai to remember their life in the modern Beit El which also called them back to Israel from the Diaspora. Then Rav Mike Feuer joins Rabbi Yishai to help Jacob deal with stones: a monument to a Godly promise, and a monument to an Earthly pact with Laban. Plus: A special song from the Torah portion by famous musician Chaim Dovid!

Archaeologist Dr. Norma Franklin speaks with Eve Harow about the capital of the Omride dynasty of the Israelite kingdom, Shomron, known as Sebastiya from the time of King Herod. This incredibly important ancient site has been all but abandoned by the authorities and even turned into a ‘Palestinian Heritage’ site with Belgian funding. Midreshet HaShomron is now organizing weekly trips to the area to familiarize Israelis (for now) with the antiquities and the historical, Biblical, economic and strategic importance of the Tel. Dr. Franklin discusses some of the finds, the research over the past century, the Christian connection and the challenges in maintaining the balance needed to keep the irreplaceable remains safe for future digs.

On today’s Israel Uncensored with Josh Hasten, news reports indicate that Prime Minister Netanayhu, along with Mossad Chief Yossi Cohen, made a secret trip to Saudi Arabia yesterday, to meet with top officials. The meeting happened as Gulf States this week voiced their concern that a Biden administration would rejoin the dangerous Iran nuclear deal. Could the meeting signal that normalization between Saudi Arabia and Israel is on the way? And will the Gulf turn to Israel as its top partner to face the Iranian threat if a new White House leads to a change in policy? All this plus the latest news from Israel, on this week’s show.

The return to Israel can have two meanings – a return to the Land and a return to essential self. The birth of the settlement movement striving for redemption was one of the most significant results of the Six Day War, and no community tells the story better than Hebron.

The battle over the birthright continues! First Malkah Fleisher joins Yishai to see if the Abraham Accords are on the right path – or is the dreaded Two State regaining traction? Then, Rav Mike Feuer joins Rabbi Yishai for ringside seats in the epic fight between Jacob and Esav for the blessing in the Torah portion of Toldot. Finally, Yishai appears on an NPR-style show to defend Jewish settlements. Plus: a cameo by Leah Fleisher!
