    Should the Supreme Court Display the Ten Commandments?

    Should the Supreme Court Display the Ten Commandments?

    Join us on a thought-provoking journey through the 10 Commandments alongside esteemed guest, Bruce Fine, a distinguished Washington D.C. lawyer. 

    As we navigate through the intricacies of interpreting the Torah and the law, I explain that it's not even possible to fathom the full reasoning behind commandments. The conversation takes an introspective turn as we ponder over the concept of G-d's justice, the idea of existence beyond the physical realm, and our purpose of inspiring others. Bruce and I grapple with the intriguing idea of why humans, with their innate ability for higher thinking, engage in actions not crucial for survival, emphasizing the tension between the body and soul.

    We wrap up the episode with a hearty discussion on truth and moral decay, exploring why justice and truth are central to our existence as humans. We delve into the Jewish perspective on war, battles, the importance of self-control, wisdom, and justice. Within the principles of Judaism, as we discuss,  are eternal ideas like justice, fairness, and honor that form the bedrock of a stable society. So, tune in and open your mind to a great conversation that promises to challenge, enlighten and inspire.

    How Liberal Zionism Strengthens Fascist Zionism

    Fighting Israel's actions without denying the driving ideology behind them is futile. That ideology is Zionism, which claims that Israel is not the country of its citizens but of all Jews. Thus, any association between Jews and Israel strengthens Zionism, including when Jews feel obligated to protest Israel as Jews .  The only effective way to defeat Zionism is for Jews to say - like Jacob Blaustein and the WJC once did - that Israel has nothing to do with the Jews and has no business being anything but a normal, democratic state, and Jews have no more reason to involve themselves as Jews in its politics any more than they do any foreign country. The more Jews distance themselves from Israel the weaker Zionism gets; the more Jews associate themselves with Israel, even by protesting its actions, the stronger Zionism gets.

Break your mind free of the shackles of Zionist propaganda with Rabbi Shapiro's brilliant podcasts (and book The Empty Wagon)! I did, and it feels wonderful!

שנאה מקלקלת את השורה

Shapiro, I always knew you to be virulently anti-Israel but now post Oct 7 ~when אידישע בלוט is flowing like water~ your parroting Palestinian propaganda is disgusting, revolting and quietly frankly spewing virulent antisemitism.
Which leads me to conclude that your actions are beyond the pale even for Satmar rather you represent Neturei Karta ie Weiss and his cronies that never met a antisemite they didn’t love

Informative : Things I learned

Very clear and concise information. As always! A- clear difference between being Jewish and Israeli. B- revelation about the inner working about the Isreal’s propaganda called hasbara. C-Revelation about Israeli themselves explaining why some sects oppose them there by being able to lie about tue true reasons.
