Show Notes

 

What an honor it was to have two of Israel's most inspiring leaders sit together to talk about their journies to Israel. 

Natan Sharansky needs no introduction, political dissent, and refusnik who became the symbol of the plight of so many trapped by a brutal, totalitarian, antisemitic regime. He spent years in Soviet prisons, most of it in solitary confinement, and never did he feel apart from the people and the land of Israel. He was released in 1986 and since then, has served the Jewish people and the Jewish state tirelessly.

Rabbi Dr. Sharon Shalom was born in a small Jewish village in Northern Ethiopia and came to Israel as a refugee without his family, at around 8 years old. After serving as an officer in the Israel Defense Forces, he received semiha from Yeshivat Har Etzion and completed his doctorate in Jewish Philosophy at Bar-Ilan University. He now serves as the Rabbi of an Ashkenazi community, of mostly Holocaust survivors in Kiryat Gat where he lives with his Swiss-born wife Avital and their five children. Rav Sharon is an advocate for Jews of all backgrounds, colors, and ideologies. He is the author of the new book Dialogues of Love and Fear, available now from www.korenpub.com.

As well as talking about their respective journies to Israel, we discussed the miracles that allowed for this recording to take place, our visions for the future of Israel, and, of course, the pandemic. We laughed, we learned, and we were moved.
