Segment 1

We depend on our newspaper headlines to reflect facts; should we point out when they don't? Eve did, was not alone, and made a difference.  So can you. War against evil can be fought on many fronts - choose one.

Segment 2

Lenny Ben David is busy with buried treasure of the photographic kind. 22,000 pictures of the Holy Land taken by American Christians from the late 19th century thru the 1940's have been digitized by the Library of Congress.  When were they shot, what do they show, what's the context of these photos, who's in them, so many questions, so much work to be done.  Many and maybe most were completely unknown till now.  One thing is for sure- Jewish life in the Land of Israel was very intense and full, decades and even centuries before the establishment of the modern State. Visit, Twitter and Facebook, too.

Segment 3

Kosher comedians run a clean show.  LA based Robert Cait has played for audiences worldwide and discusses with Eve the influences on his humor, the joys of Yiddish, the Borscht Belt and what it takes to get a laugh.

Segment 4

Giants in the Land of Israel.  Maybe the Biblical meaning meant to strike fear has now morphed into something positive- as in 'we stand on the shoulders of giants' of previous generations whose sacrifice enable us to enjoy the country in safety.
