The last installment in the Heralds of Zion series. This class explores the differences between Political and Cultural Zionism, along with introducing the personalities of Asher Ginsberg and Max Nordau. The primary question on the table is – how do you shape a new Jew?

Eve Harow has been out and about in a tourist-less Israel. She’s sending people and places out to the world virtually and acclimating to a slower pace in this incredible place.

On today’s Israel Uncensored with Josh Hasten, an interview with Josh Reinstein, founder of the Israel Allies Foundation on his new book “Titus, Trump and the Triumph of Israel; The Power of Faith-Based Diplomacy.” In the book Reinstein outlines the Jewish nation’s legal and political rights to the Land of Israel, but says “they pale in comparison to the Biblical rights of the Jewish people to the land.” He discusses how today’s friends of Israel are those supporters in the Judeo-Chrisitian world, who turn to the Bible as their guide to understand what’s really happening in Israel in the Middle East.

Class four in the Heralds of Zion series. In this class we explore the life of Theodore Herzl. Along the way we discuss assimilation, antisemitism and the major events which led up to the birth of Zionism as a political movement. The central question of the class is – what made Herzl the father of Zionism?

Yishai and Malkah celebrate their 18th anniversary by singing “I just called to say I love you” in Jerusalem’s Machane Yehuda Shuk! But what was that explosion in Beirut? And are Palestinians really Jordanians? Then, Rav Mike Feuer comes aboard to discuss building a Hindu shrine on the site of a Muslim mosque in India, and the Torah portion of “Ekev” where we learn how to love HaShem and why “Man shall not live by bread alone.”

The ‘girls’ prayer’ in Gush Katif recorded one of the most poignant events of 2005’s summer of heartbreak. Eve Harow speaks with Chagit-Moriah Gibor who was in the synagogue at the time. Did she have a crisis of faith- if so, in man or God? Chagit shares her feelings and the road she has traveled since that shattering of reliance on leadership in so many spheres. Feminism, political activism and mainly building religious society in a more understanding way are where she’s focusing her energies out of the home. Can expanded women’s roles shape a more compassionate Judaism?

On today’s Israel Uncensored with Josh Hasten an interview with Israel activist Rabbi Avi Schwartz. Schwartz’s latest project is called “The Zionist Minute,” a series of short educational video segments made by high profile figures on what Zionism means to them. In addition, Schwartz, whose father was a Palmach war hero in Israel’s War of Independence, discusses how he is educating teens to be future Zionist leaders in the footsteps of the Palmach’s teachings and traditions.

Israel’s disengagement from the Gaza Strip was fifteen years ago, but to me it feels like yesterday. In this interlude, author Daniella Levy joins me to discuss the fiction work which she wrote to engage this complex event. Along the way we speak about Tisha B’Av, what it means to be an immigrant and how one can tell a true story from multiple perspectives.

How sad should we be about the destruction of Jerusalem – when we live in the time of a rebuilt Jerusalem? Malkah Fleisher joins Yishai to talk about all the stuff that broke during the 9 Days, the Aliyah Revolution CD, and your Imagination Vacation. Then, Rav Mike Feuer on the Decalogue on Israeli trucks with stickers that read: Ein Od Milvado!

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.)
