This week’s guest (on Wednesday, February 23rd) will be Rabbi Yaakov Spivak, we will talk about various inyonim concerning Purim. Rabbi Spivak, a native of Atlanta Georgia, received his ordination from Baltimore’s Ner Yisroel Yeshiva. He holds a Master’s Degree in Education from Loyola College, and is a nationally known newspaper columnist, as well as a radio and TV commentator and a never tiring community activist.
As Rosh Kollel of Kollel Ayshel Avraham in Monsey, NY, he has seen his musmochim occupy positions in Jewish communities across the world. As Executive Director of EMES he’s known throughout the world for his successful efforts in combating missionaries and specifically those who called themselves Jews for Jesus. This group, particularly, regards him as their nemesis. He is the founder of Jewish Radio Network, where we broadcast.
We will be discussing some of the parallels between the narrative in Megillas Esther and today’s situation between Israel (world Jewry) and the leaders of Iran, as well some interesting Purim customs from around the world.
