    Why are they next to eachother?

    Why are they next to eachother?

    Shira Greenspan is back to answer your questions!
    This week join Shira to remember Israel's fallen and to celebrate the rebirth of our homeland! But wait... Aliza has a question. Why is Yom HaAztma'ut the day after Yom HaZikaron? Yom HaAtzma'ut is such a happy day, why do we have to have such a sad day only one day before? Can't they be at different times of the year? It seems strange.
    Shira speaks to Rabbi David Milston who Director of the Overseas Program at Midreshet HaRova in the old city of Jerusalem who explains how Yom HaAtzma'ut doesn't just follow Yom HaZikaron but is caused by it!
    Shira then had the privilege to speak to someone really special. Zach Brown, originally from Toronto, Canada, left his family and friends behind and is now serving as a lone soldier in the Kfir Brigade in the Israel Defence Forces. Zach told Shira about his decision to join the Israeli army despite not being born there, what it means to home to be a soldier in the Jewish homeland, how his celebration on Yom HaAtzma'ut will be different this year as a soldier, and how people can show their appreciation to the soldiers who defend Israel even from other countries.
    We close our episode with the incredible story of Nissim Gini, Israel's youngest ever soldier, and a message from lone soldiers from all over the world for our listeners for Yom HaAtzma'ut!

    Shira talks to Jordan "Gorf" Gorfinkel, former editor of the Batman comics for DC and creator of the Passover Haggada Graphic Novel from Koren Publishers.

    Shira also talks to Dr. Erica Brown, an expert educator, about how to make the Seder more fun, how the kids can take charge, and how we can fulfill the mitzva of seeing ourselves as if we left Egypt.

    What's Taking So Long?

    What's Taking So Long?

    In today's episode Shira answers questions from Raziela and Emanuel from Coral Springs, FL: If the mitzva at the Seder is to tell the story of leaving Egypt, why do we spend so much time doing anything but tell the story? And why doesn't the story sound like a story?!
    Shira talks to Rabbi Hanoch Teller and to Shira Lankin-Sheps, both EXPERT storytellers, to try and discover why we spend so much time doing other stuff at the Seder and why we don't just sit down to tell the story of when we left Egypt.
    Rabbi Hanoch Teller has written dozens of books, told THOUSANDS of stories, and has taught all over the world. He has his own podcast, Teller From Jerusalem which is available now, so listen here.
    Shira Lankin-Sheps is the founder of The Layers Project which tells the story of Jewish women, some happy, some sad, some exciting, some difficult. Shira's first book Layers: Personal Narratives of Struggle, Resilience, and Growth from Jewish Women is available from www.korenpub.com.
