A7 Radio's "The Derech Eretz Show" with Rabbi Elan Adler
Follow Israel Radio on
To counter the negative press and lack of derech eretz about Israel and Jerusalem as we approach Yom Yerushalayim (Jerusalem Liberation and Reunification Day from 1967), I invited two outstanding Israeli tour guides to describe beautiful and emotional places in Jerusalem. Esti Hershkowitz and Josh Even-Chen really capture the emotional and historical connections the Jewish people have to our 3000 year old capital city. In their enthusiastic and eloquent remarks, they give Jerusalem the derech eretz she richly deserves. Esti can be reached at firstname.lastname@example.org and Josh can be reached at email@example.com. I'm happy to recommend these two neighbors of mine for your touring and educational pleasure.
Keep that derech eretz thing going my friends, and happy Yom Yerushalayim!
