It’s exactly 15 years since the travesty of the Expulsion from Gush Katif and Northern Shomron.
Eve Harow speaks with Anita Tucker of Netzer Hazani about the longing for home in Gaza despite the rebuilding of their community physically. She misses the true coexistence with her Arab friends there who are now suffering under Hamas; the generosity to the poor that the farmers were able to manifest via their produce; the spirit of the place that, like it’s magnificent sand, got into every nook and cranny. The unconscionable betrayal by the government and others is a wound that hasn’t healed but they are deeply devoted to repairing Israel so that it will never happen again. The Second Temple, whose destruction we mourn this week, was doomed due to baseless hatred of Jew for Jew. Though she has suffered directly from that, she retains her faith and love of Am and Aretz and inspires others to do the same.

(PS from Eve: I really try to refrain from speaking ill of others especially during the 9 Days. It’s a sign of the depth of my distress at the events of 2005 that I spoke the way I did about other Israelis, as opposed to Anita who focused on the good. It’s not an excuse, it’s a reason and I strive to learn from her and pray that lessons have been learned and forgiveness will one day be requested and granted.)

On today’s Israel Uncensored with Josh Hasten, an interview with JJ Sussman, International Director at Gesher, an organization which facilitates respectful dialogue between all diverse segments of Israeli society. Sussman discusses how his organization has shifted its model as a result of Coronavirus where physically bringing people together is nearly impossible. Sussman talks about the relevance of Gesher’s work, especially now as Jews around the world are getting set to commemorate Tisha B’Av, the saddest day on the Jewish calendar, which symbolizes disunity. The goal is that one day soon, there will be Ahavat Chinam – unconditional love between Jews, as opposed to baseless hatred.

Class three in the ‘Heralds of Zion’ series. This time we explore the formation of Eastern European Enlightenment within the Pale of Settlement, along with the rise of nationalist thought across Europe. Add to this the resurgence of antisemitism within Russia and you have the context for Leon Pinsker’s work Auto-emancipation.

It’s the new month of Av and the memorial day of Aaron the High Priest. Malkah Fleisher joins Yishai to talk about the love, or absence of it, in the discourse, to find new connections to Jerusalem, and to keep Israel from becoming a Beinartistan – a bi-national state. Then, Rav Mike Feuer on the second reading of the Torah and the real story of why Moses didn’t enter the land.

Arnold and Frimet Roth are at a critical juncture in their 19 year battle for justice. The terrorist who planned the murders of their daughter Malki and 14 others while wounding 130 at Jerusalem’s Sbarro’s pizza shop in August 2001, might now be extradited to the US from Jordan where she’s hailed as a hero. Arnold joins Eve to speak of hope via realpolitik, the disappointments and betrayals, pay for slay, the ongoing grief and the journey detailed here – thisongoingwar.blogspot.com

How has the line between good and evil become so blurred? Can we help to redraw it?

On today’s Israel Uncensored with Josh Hasten, an interview with author Jodi Samuels upon the release of her new book Chutzpah, Wisdom, and Wine. In the book Samuels shares her journey from Johannesburg to Jerusalem via New York, as a community leader, world traveler, special needs advocate, outreach initiator – hosting hundreds of people in her home for events and Shabbat meals, and much more!

Class two of the ‘Heralds of Zion’ series. This class explores the tension between particularism and universalism as it found expression in the utopian socialist movements of the 19th century. In that context we meet Moses Hess, whose roots as a socialist did not prevent him from writing one of the earliest works of Jewish nationalism.

As the world we know is slowly transforming before our eyes, a global movement of believers guided by the vision of the prophets of Israel is emerging. Ari Abramowitz and Jeremy Gimpel, based in the mountains of Judea, have attracted hundreds of families from 26 different countries around the world and what they have discovered will amaze you.

The Biblical Pinchas goes ‘Harry Potter’ on the evil wizard Bilaam with Hashem’s name and snakey sword. Then, Yishai and Malkah Fleisher witness an unknown force attacking the military installations of Iran. And Corona is attacking all of us – but thank God we have cities of refuge in time and in space.

Shmuel Rosner is a well known Tel Aviv–based columnist, editor, author and researcher. He and Eve Harow discuss a wide range of topics including aliya, annexation, the instability of the Mid East, COVID-19, Brazilian cruise ships and freedom of the press. His (co-authored with researcher Camil Fuchs) book ‘#IsraeliJudaism: Portrait of a Cultural Revolution’ is a fascinating study of the development of a Judaism unique to 21st century Israel. Vibrant, sustainable only in situ, how does he see Diaspora Judaism in relation to this old/new national civilization that has been created in our ancient land?
