    #217 - Israel's Number One Communist (Dov Khenin)

    #217 - Israel's Number One Communist (Dov Khenin)

    Communist. Arab-lover. Tree-hugger. These are just a few of the nicknames his rivals use against him. He’s one of only a select few Jewish Israelis to have served as a Member of Knesset in a majority Arab party. He’s a proud communist who until recently had pictures of Che Guevara and Vladimir Lenin hanging in his parliamentary office. He’s an activist for socio-economic equality and environmental justice. HE is Dov Khenin.

    All the descriptors we just mentioned probably either make your blood boil in rage or simmer with excitement but either way, this is bound to be an interesting conversation. And if you want to learn more, after you’re done with this episode, check out “Comrade Dov”, a recent documentary directed and produced by Barak Heyman, which tells the story of Dov Khenin.

    We are thrilled to be joined by former Member of Knesset Dov Khenin today to talk about his recent resignation from political life, the documentary, his beliefs and the future of Israel.

    #216 - The Director Of Netflix's "Devil Next Door" (Yossi Bloch)

    #216 - The Director Of Netflix's "Devil Next Door" (Yossi Bloch)

    Back in November 2019, when the world was still a relatively normal place, and our biggest concern was which Ice Cream taste we should get on our midnight-munch-Wolt-Delivery (yes, wolt delivers ice cream in TLV) - anyway, last year, we had the distinct pleasure of having Yoram Sheftel on our podcast. Sheftel was one of the central characters (and what a character) of Netflix’s hit documentary series, The Devil Next Door, which depicted the incredible story of John Ivan Demjanjuk. Demjanjuk was a Ukranian-American, who was charged back in 1989 in Israel of being Ivan The Terrible - a sadist and cruel guard of Sobibor camp, during the Holocaust. The show was a phenomenal success, and was one of the pioneering Israeli TV documentary shows to be showcased on Netflix.
    If you haven’t heard our episode with Sheftel, then once you’re done with this one, got check it out - it’s a must. Episode 167.
    Today we’re joined by Yossi Bloch. Yossi is one of the busiest and most successful documentary filmmakers working in Israel currently. He co-created The Devil Next Door with Daniel Sivan, and coincidentally, he’s a fan of our Show!
    So without further ado, Yossi Bloch.

    #215 - The Man Who Invented The Iron Dome (Chanoch Levin)

    #215 - The Man Who Invented The Iron Dome (Chanoch Levin)

    In 2019 Israel spent about 20 billion dollars on defense. That’s around 11 percent of its annual budget and puts Israel amongst some of the highest spenders on defense. All in all, makes sense.

    What doesn’t make sense is that starting in the early 2000s, Israel was seeing a barrage of constant rocket fire from Gaza injuring hundreds, killing dozens and terrorizing entire communities.

    Sometimes all the money in the world won’t solve a problem. For that you need bright minds all set to a singular goal. And of course, someone to manage them.

    Chanoch Levin was that man. Chanoch was the project manager for Iron Dome, the anti missile defense system developed by Israel and the US to counter the constant rocket fire from the Gaza strip. Against all odds Chanoch and his team at Raphael were able to achieve the unimaginable.

    The story of Iron Dome is being told through a new documentary series featuring Chanoch Levin and other top Israeli brass responsible for making this miraculous missile defense system come to life. The new 3-part documentary series is now available to stream, worldwide outside of Israel, exclusively on IZZY.

    Today, we’re extremely honored to be joined by Chanoch Levin to talk about the Iron Dome defense system.

    #213 - The Idan Raichel Experience (Idan Raichel)

    #213 - The Idan Raichel Experience (Idan Raichel)

    We all have our soundtracks. A song or an artist that truly resonates with people becomes the soundtrack of those people’s lives. For many Jews across the world, and non-Jews as well, Idan Raichel is the soundtrack of some part of their life.

    Raichel is one of the most well known Israeli artists in the world. Since his hugely successful debut album The Idan Raichel Project was released in 2002, Raichel has zigzagged across the globe on countless tours. He performed a private concert for the visiting President Obama in 2013 (and that was the second time he performed in front of the president) and he’s collaborated with many world renowned artists including Alicia Keys.

    Ladies and gentlemen, today we are incredibly excited and so honored to be joined by the one and only, Idan Raichel.

    #212 - Fact Checker By Day, Comedian By Night (Yoav Rabinovitz)

    #212 - Fact Checker By Day, Comedian By Night (Yoav Rabinovitz)

    Humanity, in general, can be divided into two main groups: those who watch the news, and those who live a happy and prosperous life.

    But if you’re a sucker for news and politics like us, you’re doomed to cope with an endless stream of spins, fake news and manipulations, that it’s hard to sometimes really know what the hell’s going on.

    Fortunately there are good people who take upon them the burdensome job of fact-checking, sifting through dusty archives, watching hours upon hours of materials, in the quest for a slippery thing called The Truth.

    Yoav Rabinovitz, our guest today, is one of those people. By day, he’s the chief-editor of the super influential TV show “The Other Side with Guy Zohar”, which deconstructs news items and political speeches, and confronts them with the facts. And by night, Yoav takes off his suit and becomes a stand-up comedian, the wittiest tweeter in the Middle East, and a guy that can dance as if he’s the love child of Michael Jackson and Mick Jagger.

    2NJB is happy to have Yoav Rabinovitz to talk about these turbulent times in Israeli politics, the justice system, and above all - why he thinks Aroma, the Israeli coffee chain, is the best place in the world.
