Things have been exciting recently for your old pals at Kumah. We just put out what is – in my opinion – our best video to date, called “Under the Prayer Shawl – Secrets of the Priestly Blessing”, all about Birkat Cohanim and the pilgrimage to Jerusalem. Don’t miss it!
This week, not only did we have the opportunity to do some elbow-rubbing in Knesset and chat with some of the leaders and influencers of Israel during the recent visit of TV and Radio pundit Glenn Beck, but we were able to host Glenn and his team at our place in Maale HaZeitim and give it to him straight about the real courage, truth and independence for which we stand here in Jerusalem. You can see pictures from the event here. VIEW VIDEO OF THE EVENT HERE.
Following our latest radio program on Galey Yisrael, we got TOOONS of feedback from people about Beck – some were thrilled that their hero – whom they consider to be a great friend an advocate for Israel – was in town to show support, and that we featured him on our show. Others were frightened that someone they consider to be suspect – a devout and vocal Mormon with a lucrative media enterprise – was swooping in to tarnish their holy city and fleece their good buddies Yishai and Malkah. A very lively discussion ensued on our Facebook event page. You can add your comments on The Yishai Fleisher Page on Facebook – or down below in the comments section – to let us know what you think of us, Glenn, or anything else!
And if that was not sufficient excitement for one day, Yishai (and our great intern, Jonathan) had the blessed good fortune of being present at the arrival of a whole plane-load of new citizens of Israel! Mazel tov to the wonderful new neighbors, friends, spouses, employers, employees, soldiers, rabbis – the mishpacha – who came home for good, and mazel tov to all of us who benefit from their presence!
Good times! You might be thinking to yourself “Boy, I wish I could party like Yishai and Malkah”. But you can! Download our latest show featuring Beck AND the latest aliyah (and much more), and join in the fun! Here’s the link to download our FREE podcasts on iTunes.
