Yemenite Jews, and a 90-Year-Old’s Move to Israel(50:51)
There are some 90 Jews living in Yemen, the remainder of a once-legendary community which, almost like no other, preserved the original Jewish traditions. Dr. Aryeh Tepper, editor of The Sefardi Report and a teacher of Jewish thought and Israel Studies, discusses Yemenite culture, music and allure.
Then, Rachel Azaria, a member of Knesset for the Kulanu party — and former deputy mayor of Jerusalem — tells Yishai about her 90-year-old grandmother, who has finally immigrated to Israel as one of the 221 new immigrants who arrived today on a Nefesh B’Nefesh flight.
Finally, Yishai hears from Knesset insider Jeremy Saltan about Israel’s response to the nuclear deal with Iran.
