How a generation of swashbuckling Jews carved out an empire in the New World in their quest for treasure, religious freedom, -- and Revenge. (Classic Show from 2009)

Edward Kritzler's book,"Jewish Pirates of the Caribbean" takes us into a world we never learned about in school!  Jewish adventure on the high seas, piracy, espionage, as well as outsmarting and outdoing Spanish trade in the free world, all helped to break the Spanish empire and it's evil Inquisition it cruelly and unjustly imposed on the Jews.

Kritzler (now sadly deceased)  joins Tamar and talks about the gold, silver and other treasures Jewish pirates liberated from Spanish vessels.  He enlightens us with true stories about daring adventures, espionage, and revenge!  Hear about the Rabbi Pirate who brought his own cook on board his ship to cook him kosher meals.  Learn about the Jewish pirate ferrying between countries, arranging secret alliances with other nations in order to defeat the oppressive and murderous Spanish empire.  Hear about the brave Jewish underground made up of Torah learning Jews who tried to do 'kiruv' and return converso Jews to Judaism under the nose of the Inquisitors.  Discover the 'refugee-Jews' in the New World (who were forced to flee the inquisition) who loved these pirates and owed them their lives!  Order the book HERE.







Tamar Yonah is the daughter of a Holocaust survivor.  Her father survived the Nazi brutalities and after liberation, made his way to the shores of the British Palestine Mandate, where again fighting for his survival, fought in Israel's war of Independence. This made a great impression on her life and she too has been fighting for Israel by serving in the Israeli army & air force, and afterwards by becoming an activist for Israel and the Jewish nation.  She has been a vocal beacon of light since beginning a prolific career in radio. She hosts The Tamar Yonah Show - Israel's most popular English language radio talk show.  She also writes a biting and sometimes humorous, award winning blog that discusses current events, religion and politics. www.israelnationalnews.com/Blogs/Blog.aspx/3#   You can email Tamar at:  Tamar@IsraelNationalRadio.com
