The Great Flood was a result of God being fed up with humanity – yet Noah found grace in His eyes and saved the world. But when it was all over, why did the animals refuse to leave that stuffy ark? Join Rabbis Yishai Fleisher and Mike Feuer for this week’s animalistic Spiritual Cafe to learn about the secrets of Noah’s Ark, the beautiful yet perilous rainbow, the Tower of Babel that went down hard, and finally the appearance of a special man who spoke truth to power – Abraham.

Yishai speaks with Ambassador Michael Oren, an American-born Israeli historian, author, politician, former ambassador to the United States (2009–2013), current MK, and the Deputy Minister for Diplomacy in the Prime Minister’s Office. Oren is also the author of “Ally” – a revealing book about his experiences as ambassador in the tumultuous period of the “ideologically inflexible” Obama administration. Then, MK Rabbi Yehudah Glick on the children of his home community Otniel who suffered terror yet are now rebuilding, and his latest Knesset conference about Jewish rights on the Temple Mount. Finally, Spiritual Cafe with Rabbi Mike Feuer on the Big Bang Torah portion of Bereshit/Genesis where, as the world is being created, Abraham is already there…

Rabbi Mike Feuer rejoins Rabbi Yishai for “Spiritual Cafe” – this week: the political Fast of Gedaliah and getting ready for the Big Day – Yom Kippur – the Day of Atonement. Also, in the Torah portion, the great prophet Moses gets ready to hand over the reigns of power to Joshua, and that is not an easy moment for the Jewish people as one great leader leaves and another era – the era of the Land of Israel – emerges.

Amir Ohana is a former General Security Services officer, a lawyer, a gun-rights activist, and Israel’s only openly gay Knesset Member. While he is liberal on some matters, don’t lump him in with the pro-Two-State, land giveaway crowd – on these issues he is a hawk! Yishai speaks with Likud MK Ohana in Hebron. Then, on ‘Spiritual Cafe’: Rabbi Mike Feuer joins Yishai to talk about the anti-God forces of Amalek and that nation’s desire to block Jews from making it home to the Land of Israel. Finally, the terrible Biblical curses and the power of joy to annul them.

While in Southern California, Yishai spoke with renowned trauma and grieving expert Dr. Ken Druck about 9/11, about coping with terror in Israel, and about the death of Dr. Druck’s own daughter and his 5-point system of “honoring” the dead with a recipe for life.

On this week’s show: Kings, Prophets, Priests, and Necromancers all compete for power – but who is top dog?? And is there a separation of Shul and State? Rabbi Yishai is joined by Rabbi Mike Feuer to discuss the Torah’s system of Israeli governance and how to balance Biblical politics with the commandment to walk simply with God. Plus, how to keep the fruit trees from being harmed in a time of war. Prepare for Shabbat with Spiritual Cafe!

After the Jewish people came to the Land of Israel they were commanded to “Keep Making Aliyah” – to go up to Jerusalem 3 times a year. Rabbi Yishai Fleisher is reunited with Rabbi Mike Feuer for “Spiritual Cafe” where they discuss the end of the summer, the passing of Gene Wilder, and the Torah portion which includes the laws of kosher and non kosher animals, the searching for the right spot and building of the Temple, and the laws of the false prophet. Reconnect with the Torah portion and the Land of Israel on this weeks exciting program.

Shema Yisrael! The phrase that one hears when the Torah comes out of the Ark, when a child is named, every day morning and night, and even when, God forbid, the sword is at your throat. Rabbi Mike Feuer joins Rabbi Yishai for Spiritual Cafe to discuss the epic Torah portion of Ve’etchanan, the Ten Commandments, the Shema, and the fact that there is no other but Him! Don’t miss the stories, the laughs, and your emails on this week’s Yishai Fleisher Show.

Rabbi Mike Feuer joins Rabbi Yishai Fleisher to say good-bye to the Book of Numbers, the book of Jewish politics and Jewish leadership, and begin the Book of Deuteronomy, the book of “things” – the book of Jewish philosophy.  While, on the one hand, Moses recounts his proud moments of conquest in the trans-Jordan, he prepares Joshua and Caleb and a young nation for the heavy lifting of conquering the Land of Israel and of setting up a model society. Next, Rabbi Yishai reads your “I am a listener” emails, and finally, the Rio Olympics – why is the water so darn dirty??

Rabbi Mike Feuer joins Yishai Fleisher for a special “Spiritual Cafe” from Hebron. There they discuss the end of the Book of Numbers “the book of Jewish Leadership,” as they sit adjacent to Machpela, the burial place of Adam and Eve (the roots of humanity), the burial place of Abraham (the root of Abrahamic Faiths), and later, from the Tomb of Yishai and Ruth, (the roots of the Davidic dynasty and Messiah). Rabbi Mike and Rabbi Yishai also discuss the Biblical Cities of Refuge, of which Hebron is one of, and the romance of Hebron, that is, the couples who are buried in this ancient city, and the romance that ends the Book of Numbers.
