Kiss My Mezuzah: Reflections on a Nationalist Rally and on Left-Wing Ridicule of Tradition16 March 2023
How many people came to the nationalist rally? Why was Jerusalem such a central issue? Why did the prime minister himself take the time to show up? VOI's Yishai Fleisher is joined in-studio by VOI political correspondent Raoul Wootliff to reflect on the right-wing demonstration in Tel Aviv on Sunday night.
Also, why has kissing the Mezuzah become a political issue? Listen to Yishai rant against those in the post-Zionist camp who make fun of traditional Israelis, portraying them as boorish and backward.
Then, hear the voices of the people of Israel -- some pro, some con -- who came out to demonstrate on Sunday night. Yishai was on the scene to provide a feel for the real mood in Israel.
