      Segment 1

       The untimely death of Rav Chanan Porat is a loss to his immediate
      family and to his extended family of Am Yisrael.   The former MK,
      lifelong teacher, guide and kibbutznik did not seek glory, he saw
      opportunity and shaped the future thru his unshakeable faith, love of
      the Jewish people, the Torah and the Land of Israel.  He was laid to
      rest today in Kfar Etzion.  Eve and the tens of thousands of other
      residents of the communities of Gush Etzion owe him a debt of
      gratitude.  The Children have Returned to their Borders, and he was
      one of those who led us home.   Thank you, with all our hearts, and
      may his memory be for a blessing, as his life was.

      'In the Wake of the Surge' is the new release by Michael Totten,
      blogger, journalist and political analyst.  It's based on his
      dispatches from Iraq while covering the American led Surge against the
      Insurgents and like his first book, 'The Road to Fatima Gate' helps us
      understand the tensions, loyalties, nuances and mindsets of an Arab
      Middle Eastern country.  He speaks with Eve of his impressions of the
      Kurds, General Petraeus, what its like to live in a war zone, and
      where he's headed next.  www.amazon.com

      Segment 2

       Rabbi Nathan Laufer, educator, author and lecturer on Jewish identity
      and leadership, has an explanation for why we do - or don't do- and
      say certain things on Yom Kippur and Sukkot.  Our customs reflect a
      commemoration of events that occurred in the past and attempts to
      'fix' the mistakes and sins that as a nation did not bode well for our
      future.  To say the least.  So by not eating on Yom Kippur we avoid
      the gluttony and immorality that led to the Sin of the Golden Calf; we
      bless the 4 species on Sukkot to show Hashem that we do appreciate the
      bounty of Israel and thus try to make up for the Sin of the Spies.
      Etc.  A very pertinent and thought provoking message for all of us in
      the midst of the High Holy Days.
