Israel Radio Podcast with Yishai Fleisher
Summary: Listen to the only English-language broadcast-radio (FM) talk show in Israel! News, interviews, culture and ideas mix with positivity and pride and permeate every hour of the Yishai Fleisher show.
On Israel's Holocaust Memorial Day, Malkah Fleisher joins Yishai to talk about the bad guys of the past and bad guys of the present. Then, Yishai visits Rabbi Mois Navon on the beach in northern Israel to search for the elusive Tekhelet snail. Finally, the words of Mike Bernath, a 90-year old Auschwitz survivor and heroic partisan, who passed away this year.
To believe that the Temple offerings will come back again you need to be unambivalent about the Torah - like Rabbi Mike Feuer. To recognize Jerusalem as the capital of Israel you need to be unambivalent like the American Administration as described by Eli Pieprz. To bomb a Syrian nuclear installation you need to have an unambivalent IDF as portrayed by Malkah Fleisher. They all join Rabbi Yishai for a show filled with an unambivalent love of Israel and love of God.
First Yishai speaks with Rabbi Steven Pruzansky of Bnai Yeshurun Congregation in Teaneck, New Jersey and discusses the future of American Jewry, of AIPAC, and of the America-Israel relationship. Then in New York City, at the Aliyah Mega Event, Yishai speaks with Rabbi Yehoshua Fass co-founder and director of Nefesh B’Nefesh. Finally a conversation with Rabbi 'Gotch' Yudin, Rosh Yeshiva and Director of Ashreinu - a special yeshiva which came to visit Hebron. Last but not least, Malkah Fleisher joins Yishai for a conversation about the Trump phenomenon and about preparation for Passover.
Rabbi Yishai travels to DC to join 18,000 pro-Israel Jews and friends of Israel at AIPAC's Policy Conference. But with all the love, he was there to push-back on the Two State Solution and keep the heartland areas of Judea and Samaria safe, and under Israeli sovereignty. Hear about the big pro-Judea event in DC and pro-Hebron lobbying on the Hill. Also, the Torah portion where all the stuff of the Tabernacle finally gets built!
Can the Jewish people look at Moses' beaming countenance after he returns from a face to face with God? Can they overcome their own sin of serving a golden calf at the foot of Mt. Sinai? Rabbi Yishai records a special upside-down show on Purim night in Judea.
The High Priest clothes give glory to God, while Mordechai's beautiful garments laud the victory of Israel over Amalek. Rabbi Mike Feuer joins Rabbi Yishai to get pre-Purim holy drunk on Torah and to figure out the future of AIPAC as well. Then, Malkah Fleisher joins the show to talk about why Jews eat the sweetened ears of their enemies.
As we enter the new month of Adar - the happiest month on the Jewish calendar - we prepare to read the Scroll of Esther and confront the pesky Persian Haman who, like Hitler, wanted to annihilate the Jewish people. However, the challenge of Persia is once again immanent! Rabbi Mike Feuer joins Rabbi Yishai to fight back Iranian drones, to push back on unbridled media and money which effects Israel's democracy, and to learn about the holy vessels of the Tabernacle including the Ark of the Covenant and the Golden Menorah.
According to much of the media, the Jewish State is stealing someone else's land and continuously promises a Two State solution that never seems to arrive. On campus, Israel is delegitimized and accused of a growing occupation in the "West Bank". But for most Israelis, Jewish presence in these areas is a natural and organic part of Jewish history - and blocking a future Palestinian state is key for Israeli security. So is Israel doomed to an eternal impasse and Balkanization with its neighbors? Or is there a way forward? Moreover, can the Jewish State survive the attacks on its narrative and legitimacy? Join Rabbi Yishai in Scottsdale AZ for this public lecture.
The trees of Israel have a birthday on the 15th of Shvat - let's celebrate! Rabbi Yishai is joined by Rabbi Mike Feuer and then by Malkah Fleisher for an episode filled with deep roots, sweet fruits, the flowering of Land of Israel, the 10 Commandments, and the wise father-in-law Jethro who tells Moses to shape up!
Vice President Mike Pence spoke Biblical truth at the podium at the Knesset, and his speech rocked Israel with its unadulterated Zionist message. Moses sang at the sea after Egypt was destroyed before Israel's eyes, but his vision included the building of the Temple in Jerusalem. Rabbi Mike Feuer joins Rabbi Yishai to go through the sea, to eat Manna, to fight Amalek, and to come home to the Promised Land.
The Jewish people have always been tasked with being False God Slayers. From Abraham who struck down his father's idols to the Children of Israel who ate the gods of Egypt! Rabbi Mike Feuer joins Rabbi Yishai to delve into the rejection of the Egyptian gods yesterday, and the continued slaying of false gods today. Then, Elie Pieprz, Director of International Relations at the Council of Judea and Samaria on Mahmoud Abbas' recent mental meltdown and true ugly face revelation. Plus: Yishai's Super Bowl Challenge!
We all, sometimes, suffer from Pharaoh's heart disease - we harden our hearts and do not follow what our holy and happy voice tells us to do. Rabbi Mike Feuer joins Rabbi Yishai in making battle with the hardened hearts within all of us, and in making battle with those dark forces that seek to undermine the light of the Israel.
God could make Redemption come about by Himself if He wanted to - He can do anything! But God wants mankind to choose Redemption, to want it themselves. Rabbi Mike joins Rabbi Yishai to usher in the Book of Exodus, and the first great redeemer - Moses!
As the forefather Jacob lies on his deathbed in Egypt he makes Joseph, his beloved son, take an oath: don't bury me in Egypt! Subsequently Joseph and the Biblical brothers will bury Jacob in Hebron together with the rest of the Biblical family. Hebron spokesman Noam Arnon joins Rabbi Yishai for a deep read of the Biblical passages. Also: Rabbi Yishai reads your emails and doubles down on supporting Prime Minister Netanyahu.
The day after Hanukkah Rabbi Yishai is not satisfied. Can we make Hanukkah great again? Or will Christmas, and other fake narratives win the day? Will the great lie of "make Palestine great again" replace the light of Israel? Plus: the Torah portion of the Lion of Zion!
