On the Yiddish Voice tonight we have a very interesting guest. He's an actor and entertainer, but no ordinary one. He is a Chareidi Jew, specifically a Skverer Chossid. In his relatively short life he has suffered no small amount. He's a widower. He not only lost his wife, but then they wanted to take his son away from him. All that and more make up the plot of a new movie named "Menashe", in which this man, whose name stage name is Menachem Lustig, play the leading role. Menachem Lustig is our guest with an interview on this week's show.
Also on this week's show:
In honor of Israel Independence Day (Yom Haatsmaut): from our archives: Hasia Segal talks about a relatively unsung hero of Israel, and a Bostonian, the late Dewey Stone.
