Evil Hamas rockets are coming down from the sky on Israel, but the Jewish people are dreaming of Jacob’s ladder connecting between heaven and earth. Rav Mike Feuer joins Rabbi Yishai to walk with the Forefather Jacob on his adventures, dreams, family life and strife, and the birth of the Tribes of Israel. Then, Rabbi Daniel Korobkin, Senior Rabbi at Beth Avraham Yoseph of Toronto Congregation (“The BAYT”) join Yishai to talk about Pittsburgh and the Israel-Diaspora divide.
What is happening to the complex and sensitive relationship between Israelis and American Jews in the wake of the massacre in Pittsburgh and the handling of the situation by Israeli government officials? Gil Hoffman gets very different points of view from the former ambassador of the United States in Israel, Dan Shapiro, and from Jason Pearlman, the foreign affairs adviser to Israel’s Diaspora Affairs Minister Naftali Bennett. Pearlman just returned from Pittsburgh with Bennett and believes negative reactions to the visit were very exaggerated. Shapiro believes Israeli politicians need to be more sensitive. Shapiro also analyzes the impact of Tuesday’s mid-term US elections on Israel’s future.
On today’s Israel Uncensored with Josh Hasten, we mourn the loss of 11 Jews who were murdered in a Pittsburgh Synagogue on Shabbat morning. Josh describes how many on social media used this horrific hate crime as a cynical means to bash Israel, the Trump Administration, or anyone else under the sun, instead of focusing on the white-supremacist neo-Nazi who carried out the shooting. In reality, he says that anti-Semitism is a 3,000+ year-old phenomenon. At the same time, Israelis living on the Gaza border were also the target of terror/hate having to run for the shelters again this past Friday night as Hamas/Islamic Jihad terrorists fired over 30 rockets into Israeli communities. Josh says that Israel should be not enabling the terrorists in Gaza and halt the supply of aid, especially fuel which ends up being used to launch rockets and missiles against the Jewish State.
