Menashe Lustig is the both the star of the new film "Menashe" but the story is also based partially on his real life. We interviewed him this past May 2017 when the film had its opening at the Brattle Theatre in Cambridge, MA. Now that it's starting a national run on Los Angeles and New York, we are reairing the interview once again.
In the second half of our show, we turn to sad semi-holiday Tisha B'Ov, which falls this coming week on Monday night and Tuesday, by featuring some of the best presentations from past years, namely, the late Miriam Libenson's 1995 presentation for Tisha B'Ov and excerpts from a much more recent (2010) interview about Tisha B'Ov in our time with Rabbi Simon Jacobson of the Meaning Life Center (https://www.meaningfullife.com/).
Air Date: July 26, 2017
