The High Holy Days are also know as the Days of Awe which can be awesome, or awful. Here is a look at how to tie the work of Rosh Hashanah, Yom Kippur and Sukkot together into an approach to building a world whose horizon is big enough to hold our dreams.

On today’s very special edition of Israel Uncensored with Josh Hasten, Josh reports from the Gush Etzion ceremony on the anniversary of the murder of warrior for Israel Ari Fuld HY”D. People from all over Israel and some from overseas attended the moving event including Col. Richard Kemp, former British military forces commander in Afghanistan and Dr. Harold Rhode former Pentagon specialist on the Middle East. Josh also spoke to many other friends of Ari who told stories of how Ari inspired them to stand up for Israel, whether in the IDF, on social media, or throughout the world of public diplomacy including Avi Abelow, Brian of London, Zahava Englard Shapiro, Rachel Moore, Nadia Matar, Yehudit Katzover, and more.

Rabbi Yakov Nagen speaks with Eve Harow about his new book and the needed balance between “doing’ and “being”. His unique synthesis of wisdom from Jewish sources, Western philosophy, Eastern spirituality and even music and modern literature is meant to lead us to find greater meaning in life. How do we connect to God in the aftermath of tragedy? How do we make sense of a world that’s “the best of times and the worst of times”? Rabbi Nagen is also a noted leader in interfaith dialogue and a beacon of hope for better societies and eventually, perhaps, a healed world.
G’mar Chatima Tova!

With no coffee because of the slow-fast-day, Rav Mike Feuer joins Rabbi Yishai for post-Rosh HaShanah pre-Yom Kippur schmoozing about the “fun” work of repentance and the good side of humanity’s backsliding. Then Malkah Fleisher on her favorite moment of the new year and deep thoughts about sunlight reaching Earth.

The Sinai campaign was many things – a preemptive strike against Israel’s enemies, the last gasp of colonialism in the Middle East and a complete failure of international law. This episode explores the 1956 war from all these angles.

Rabbi’s Ari Abramowitz and Jeremy Gimpel weave together the internal domestic confusion of Israel’s election with the profound and auspicious time in the final days before mankind embarks upon Rosh HaShanah – the New Year.

On the road again, Rabbi Yishai is in Brooklyn! Join him as he goes over the Torah portion of Netzavim and discusses flying-high repentance, God’s secrets, and choosing a biblical, Godly, and meaningful life!!

Gil Hoffman explains why he believes that the coalition negotiations on forming a national unity government that started on Tuesday are only the start of a very long road until Israel will finally have a new government in three months. He takes listeners behind the scenes in two meetings of Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s Likud party. He then explains why the Likud might actually be better off without Netanyahu at the helm.

The clock is counting down toward the 1956 Sinai Campaign. Before we can tell that story the threads of the Cold War, infiltration and post-colonial politics have to come together.

Israelis went to the polls this past week, but results produced a stalemate leading to a period of uncertainty as to which Israeli leader will form the next government. While Benny Gantz’s Blue and White party received two more Knesset mandates than the incumbent – Prime Minster Netanyahu’s Likud, neither side has enough support to form a government. The ball is now in the court of President Reuven Rivlin to try and help the sides make compromises to reach the necessary 61 seats. If not, Israel could in fact be headed towards yet another election – its third in less than a year, this coming winter.  On today’s Israel Uncensored with Josh Hasten, Josh tries to sort out the confusion and explain Rivlin’s daunting task.
