Segment 4 of January 1, 2013. For the final segment of this week’s show, Rabbi Danny Cohen (Director of Chabad of Hebron) joins Yishai in honor of the 200th year anniversary of the yarhzeit of the founder of the Chabad movement, Rabbi Shneur Zalman of Liadi (known in Chabad as the Alter Rebbe and around the world as the Baal HaTanya). Together, Cohen and Yishai start off by discussing Cohen’s background and how his unique experience helps bring IDF soldiers to Judaism. They move on to talk about the history of the Avraham Avinu synagogue in Hebron. The synagogue at one point was used as a pen to hold goats until it was lovingly restored by Professor Ben-Tzion Tavger and other great Jews. The segment ends with a focus on the history of Chabad’s presence in the city and the importance of Hebron to Chabad.
