Israel Under Attack

This week, Israel defends itself from an unprecedented barrage of missiles launched from Gaza. Over 1,000 missiles were fired at Israel just in the days leading up to this broadcast, between May 10 -12, resulting in loss of life and extensive damage, and sending hundreds of thousands of Israelis to bomb shelters. At the same time, mobs of local Arabs are rioting in numerous Israeli cities, attacking Jews, and burning down synagogues, stores, cars…while much of the world’s governments hypocritical response, condemning Israeli defensive action but ignoring the attacks against Israel, are predictably hypocritical, and the media’s one-sided portrayal is a showcase of lies, ignorance…and just plain evil. In this week’s Jerusalem Lights Podcast, Jim Long and Rabbi Chaim Richman delve deeply into the truth behind these events, shedding much light and dispelling falsehood. As we usher in the month of Sivan, begin the book of Number and prepare for the upcoming Festival of Shavuot, this episode provides vital knowledge, understanding and inspiration.

Jerusalem Lights’ is about the universality of the eternal Torah and its accessibility and vital connection to every individual, regardless of background or nationality. The goal of ‘Jerusalem Lights’ is to provide authentic Torah knowledge to all those who have a sincere spiritual hunger, exploring the reciprocal relationship between Israel and the Nations and providing greatest access possible to universal Torah… Torah for everyone.


That's exactly what happens as Rabbi Chaim Richman of Jerusalem teams up with Jim Long of Arkansas, lecturer, documentary film maker, dedicated Noahide, and student of the spiritual trailblazer Vendyl Jones.


Rabbi Richman frames the Torah’s lessons in the context of current world events and the political reality, emphasizing the contemporary challenges and personal implications for every person. Jim Long’s views and ideas, culled from his extensive experience and remarkable knowledge as a non-Jew who loves the Torah, are powerful and dynamic. ‘Jerusalem Lights’ will speak to countless seekers of truth everywhere whose questions have waited for answers.
