VOI’s Eve Harow hears from ‘Jerusalem Design’ co-founder Chezi Spero and Begin Center information resources director Yisrael Medad.
After an intense week of tour-guiding throughout the country, Eve talks about the importance of experiencing Israel with all one’s senses, including taste, by eating the delicious fruit of the land.
Then, Eve is joined in-studio by Spero, a lawyer-turned-interior designer, recently featured in an Israeli magazine as one of a new generation of religious men who wear designer clothes. He explains the concept of “dressing for success,” and how wearing haute couture makes a statement in the professional world. He says that it’s also more respectful of a Torah way of life to dress as stylishly as one can afford, and that appearance can make all the difference in how one is perceived.
Finally, Eve is joined in-studio by Medad, longtime Israel advocacy expert and former Knesset parliamentary staffer, to talk about the Israeli withdrawals from Gaza in 1949 and 1956, and from the Sinai in 1982. They wonder whether those were precedents for the 2005 disengagement from Gaza; if security guarantees from other countries are reliable; and why no one objects when Jews — or Arabs — destroy Jewish homes, but are outraged every time illegal Arab houses are removed. listen now
