The Primordial Light of Hanukkah Banishes Today’s Darkness

Baruch Widen, interfaith "dialoguer," artist, and a perennial student of American history, joins Yishai in the studio to discuss the "Israel Fatigue" phenomenon and how Israel is now perceived in America. Hint: Some people are buying the anti-Israel media bias.

Then on Spiritual Cafe: did you know that the first man, Adam, celebrated Hanukkah? Rabbi Mike Feuer joins Yishai in-studio to discuss humanity's primordial urge to overcome the long dark nights of winter and which the lights of Hanukkah satisfy. Also, how did the Biblical Joseph acquire the faith and fortitude to follow his dreams to the end, and can we learn from him?
