    Yesterday, Joe Biden was sworn in as President of the United States of America and Kamala Harris as the first female Vice President in American History. With them Israel waved goodbye to one of the friendliest American administrations in modern history.

    And if that’s not enough, Israel is on its own way to an inauguration… but first it has to get through another election (the fourth in two years).

    Meanwhile, Israel has extended the lockdown for another 10 days while the national vaccination effort is progressing at an unprecedented speed.

    We’ll be discussing all this and more today with a great friend of the podcast, and old guest and an Instagram sensation, Hananya Naftali.

    While serving in the IDF, Hananya was unable to turn a blind eye to all the fake news he heard about Israel. So he decided to do something about it. Fast forward 4 years - he’s got huge followings on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram. We are super thrilled to be joined by Hananya Naftali.

    #228 - CEO of 'she codes' Battles Covid (Ruth Polacheck)

    From Mark and Steve to Bill and Elon, when scrolling through any list of the top figures in tech, there are practically no female faces. And it’s not just at the top. According to some statistics, in the US, women represent only 14% of software engineers and only 25% of all computer-science related jobs. It’s not much better in Silicon Wadi either. As of 2017, women made up only 29% of all computer science students in Israel.

    So why is this? Why in 2021, in the age of equality, is there still such a wide gap? And finally, are we doing something about it?

    Ruth Polachek is the Chairwoman, Founder and CEO for 6 of the last 7 years of “she codes”, a community of 30,000 Israeli female software developers. “she codes” has as its mission statement the goal of reaching 50% female representation in the tech industry within a decade. Ruth is also currently CEO and Co-Founder of a new Digital Health venture, LessTests, which aims to make Covid-19 testing as accessible as possible to everyone around the world. We are thrilled to be joined today by Ruth Polachek.

    #225 - Startup for the People (Tamara Harel-Cohen)

    Covid has been with us for a year now - happy birthday! But as we’re all gonna be vaccinated pretty soon, some aspects of the disease are going to remain with us for a long time in the future.

    Because even though most people didn’t end up getting infected with the virus, a huge amount of households - here in Israel at least - suffer from the devastating economic impact, that two lockdowns and more ever-lasting draconic restrictions, have brought upon middle class and lower class people who simply try to make ends meet.
    When Tamara Harel Cohen decided to make Aliyah and devote her career to build a socially impactful startup, she didn’t imagine the %@#$%-storm that would hit us all. Her company, Riseup, tries to help households make better economic decisions, and get out of debt. As debt in Israel rises constantly each year - that is not an easy mission to embark on.
    We’re super excited to have Tamara Harel-Cohen with us today, to talk about her fascinating and innovative company, economic decisions, and much more.

    #224 - StandWithUs Israel Executive Director (Michael Dickson)

    #224 - StandWithUs Israel Executive Director (Michael Dickson)

    What makes up the DNA of a nation? It’s hard to think of one quality, or even a handful of qualities that unite millions or hundreds of millions of people. After all, societies are, in the end of the day, just a bunch of individuals. And still, it’s hard not to wonder sometimes, what makes a nation tick, and why do certain people - and certain countries - stand out?

    Only a little over 70 years old, Israel is already a huge success story in so many ways. For decades Israel enthusiasts have been trying to find the answer to the question - why has the Jewish nation thrived in such extraordinary ways? Is it our culture, our upbringing, or perhaps something in the tap water?

    Today we’re joined by Michael Dickson. Michael and his co-author Dr. Naomi L. Baum have recently released Isresilience, a new book which, through a series of conversations with inspiring Israelis, endeavors to answer just these types of questions. Michael is the Executive Director of Stand With Us in Israel - an organization that advocates for Israel and fights against the BDS movement worldwide.
    We’re super thrilled to have Michael Dickson with us today to talk about his new book, about StandWithUs and about much much more.

Wow

If this was supposed to disprove Jewish propaganda trying to divide America it kinda failed! Lol it might have actually proven its existence

JasonSuperPisces ,

Not such nice Jewish boys.

Very conservative, skeptical, negative and close minded.
Wish we could strip them of their self appointed names of being NJBs.
