On the Ninth of Av, Yishai and Malkah Fleisher sit on the floor and mourn the destroyed Temples, and also remember the destruction of Gush Katif with audio from that painful summer. Journalist Ben Bresky surveys the other calamities that befell the Jewish people on Tisha B’Av. Rav Mike Feuer joins Yishai to deal with the split in Israeli society and search for signs of redemption. Plus: A discussion of the Torah portion of Ve’etchanan with the Ten Commandments and Shema Yisrael, and the secret of the birth of the Messiah on the very day of destruction.
Produced by Yishai Fleisher and the Land of Israel network and part of JNS’s library, “The Yishai Fleisher Show” is a popular English-language podcast exploring Israeli life, politics and Jewish thought.
Drawing on his experience as a journalist, legal and biblical scholar, IDF soldier and spokesman for the Jewish Community of Hebron, Yishai sheds light on everything from global and Middle East news to weekly Bible/Torah study, health, family, and, of course, the amazing rebirth of Israel.
