The Difference between Prayer and Praise
2,300 years ago, the rabbis established the last Jewish
holiday, Hannukah. Can we be in the midst of creating a new one?
Following up on their last interview, David Nekrutman, director of the Center for Jewish-Christian Understanding and
Cooperation, joins VOI's Ari Abramowitz and Jeremy Gimpel to expand on his newest initiative, the "Day to Praise." He is inviting Christians to recite the Psalms of Hallel, alongside the Jewish people's commemoration of Israeli Independence Day -- and to transform it into a part of their religious life. Tune in to hear more about this controversial and revolutionary effort.
Then, Rabbi Tuly Weisz joins Ari and Jeremy on his grandfather's yahrtzeit (anniversary of his death)to provide a moving and powerful glimpse into the recipe for living a life of greatness. Jewish Sages explain that the righteous "live more after their death than during their lives." Tune in to understand the depth of this statement.
