Rep. Torres challenges the narrative around what's happening with the U.S.-Israel relationship in Washington and within his party — and reveals how much support we really have.

Remarkable Thought Leader and Conversationalist…

Through his guests and conversations, Rabbi Hirsch has been warning of the insideous antisemitism coming from the left since his earliest episodes in 2022.

His conversations are inspirational, relevant and poignant.

And Rabbi Hirsch’s respect and advocacy for Zionism has been consistent, clear and unapologetic. Hopefully it is contagious.

I look forward to each new episode dropping.
