TJF Talks Episode 55 | Harvard FAIL

TJF Talks Episode 55 | Harvard FAIL

This talk with Sabrina—wise, well-informed, and so sweet—was so positive about the future. Her thesis carefully laid out the problem of being a Jew in Harvard and the eternal dilemma of which side of the map to lean into in order to follow your conscience and preserve your safety. Little did we suspect that our world would be turned upside down and that the worst we came to assume about Harvard would come to pass just days after the Oct. 7 atrocities in Israel by Hamas. A must listen.

The former Seattle Times Editorial Team and columnist got fired by a woke mob over a tweet saying that Hitler could be viewed as less evil than Lenin. Whether or not you agree with his views this gentle journalist has a great point to make about society's double standards and the problem it poses for Jews.

Few people start resisting antisemitism in their teen years, fewer still can claim to have defeated a BDS campaign in Princeton. But Jared's got it all, a deep understanding of the dangerous covenant between wokeness and anti-Jewishness, a winning strategy for the future, and a charming smile. He's a real tiger.

TJF Talks Episode 48 | Antisemites beware

Proud Jew. Ozraeli. Executive director Israellycool Israel Advocacy. Middle East analyst. Oh, and did we mention he's the Van Helsing of antisemites? The great thing about David is that he'll be the first to call you out if you go against the Jews but he also has a warm spot in his heart if you are ready to open up, talk things over, and connect. The persistence of a Pit Bull and the heart of a Golden Retriever.

With South African history behind her, a keen understanding of antisemitism,  and plenty of media experience, Rolene—who recently moved to Israel—is a tireless advocate for Israel but isn't afraid to go beyond the politics of the issue into the sticky stuff that makes people human. We loved every moment of this talk and so will you.

We interviewed the host of one of the most popular conservative podcasts in the U.S. and asked him about growing up as a poor immigrant from the Middle East, about the country that embraced him, and talked about his thoughts on the dumbing down of the current generation, the sense of extreme polarity that seems to dominate every aspect of life, and what will save the Jews from the rising tide of antisemitism. We didn't ask him how come he looks and sounds like a bearded George Clooney. So if you're here for this, sorry to disappoint you.

TJF Talks Episode 41 | Can we do better

Do we believe things are getting better or is this a form of wishful thinking on our part? Did we really do everything in our power to solve antisemitism? Are we willing to admit that perhaps we don't know what people really want from us? Could it be that deep down Jews feel different and that tryin to suppress this feeling will not make our uniqueness go away? Lots of great questions and a deep discussion with Tangle News Founder Isaac Soul.

TJF Talks Episode 40 | Some hate cannot be explained

With more than 1 million followers on Instagram, over 500,000 on TikTok and an impressive array of media credits and modeling gigs to her name, Austin is perhaps the archetype of Gen Z celebrity. Despite her young age, she's managed to interview top NBA athletes and make a name for herself as a sports broadcaster. And although she's using her platform to support human rights struggles of different groups, she's still getting a lot of backlash for her unyielding support for Israel. Is it not enough to try and be a responsible citizen of the world these days? Is there something else that's required of us?

Savvy Auntie, Melanie Notkin, opens her heart to us and it's all warm and fuzzy and why can't we have that feeling between us in spite of our born differences? We don't know if Jews listen to anyone even when our wellbeing is on the line but maybe women, with their natural ability to embrace and bring together, can make us do things even when we don't initially want to do them. Sounds like growing up. Maybe it's what we need.

They say we are products of our environment and the exception proves the rule. But what can we learn from one would-be Jihadist who decided to follow his heart and question everything that he was raised on? Could his journey of transformation teach Jews something about the attitude of the world toward them and, equally, the attitude they should take toward the world

Not many people wake up in the morning with an urge to explain Israel to the world. Fewer still actually take up English to do a better job at it. This guy is all heart and runs on what feels like pure love of his country. Is this enough to save the Jewish state? See for yourself. One thing is for sure, he was good enough to become the social media content producer for Israel's PM Benjamin Netanyahu.

TJF Talks Episode 34 | Can we change our minds?

If, as a Jew, you're waiting for the world around you to change its mind about you and stop hating you cause you're just like everyone else, then this talk is not for you. If you want to take an hour to walk in someone else's shoes, and bring change to the discourse, then you're in the right place. Our guest was de-platformed for being too outspoken against the purported Jewish power structure. He was on almost every antisemitism list. He was loud and toxic. Then he disappeared, found inner peace, changed his name, and is now back to find answers to the big Jewish questions at the heart of antisemitism. Like us, he's convinced that talking about it is the first step. We're convinced you have to listen to his heart.

Here's a person committed to bringing goodness, justice, and tough love to the whole world, often in the face of waves of antisemitism, a skewed administration, and indifferent students. And he's doing it by running the Hillel chapter in Baruch college and overseeing 7 others in the NYC area including SVA, City College, FIT, Pace, The New School... It's the kind of man you wished you had as a teacher when you were growing up because he will not give up on you no matter what and he will inspire you with his unstoppable energy. If anyone can unite us stubborn Jews, it's Ilya Bratman!

Episode 22 - The Untold Holocaust (Mystery Book Revealed)

In this final episode of the 'mystery book series' we reveal the book and have its author, Chaim Ratz, join us for an uplifting conversation about the darkest time in our history. This episode also marks the first in a series of video casts that will feature regular guests to discuss our hypothesis that Jewish unity (or lack thereof) is at the heart of anti-Jewish sentiments and how it also holds the solution to our ails. #unity #antisemitism #thetribe #weremember #internationalholocaustrememberanceday

Episode 21 - Architects of mass psychosis

Episode 21 - Architects of mass psychosis

Irony is one of the hallmarks of Jewish existence. After all, who could've thought that the same Jewish ideas that would help explain the psychology of the masses, and pave the way to modern PR and consumerism, would also be among the primary building tools of Nazi propaganda? What does Freud's nephew, Ed Bernays, have to do with the lucrative yet deadly love triangle between captains of industry, governments, and consumers? It's not the first time that Jewish thought—a systemic view of humanity coupled with a deep seated desire to help masses of people find pleasure and meaning—ended up in disaster. But it was the first time that disaster took on such proportions. And perhaps the mass psychosis is ours? #Israel #antisemitism #jewish #PR #Holocaust #Freud #Nazism #masspsychosis

Episode 20 - Unlikely buddies

What the hell freezes over? Why is there a swastika and a star of David on the same commemorative medal? Who would commemorate such an unholy alliance and for what reason? Was there a moment in the dark days before the holocaust that offered a way out for European Jewry? And if there was one, why didn't we take it? Why didn't all Jews unite and return to their homeland? Was it a matter of personal choice and temperament or was there something collectively deeper at work here? Could we have avoided the Holocaust? Can we avoid a second Holocaust in America? When such mass events unfold are things really black and white or is there a gray area in which we can work? And how come there is always someone reminding us that we cant be like everyone else?

Episode 19 - A cross section of our midsection

Episode 19 - A cross section of our midsection

WWI was one of the most pointless wars in the history of mankind. But it did serve to prove one point, namely, that try as they may, society will always look at Jews as social pariahs. It didn't matter that Jewish deaths in the war were proportional to their numbers in the population or that the wealthy industrialist Walther Rathenau used his resources and ingenuity to give Germany a lease on life during the war and even negotiated on its behalf after the war. Like Rathenau, Jewish credibility was dead shortly after. As the 20's raged on in the Weimar Republic, with a sexual revolution and progressive values at the helm—much like today btw—the value of Jewish life was deteriorating as fast as the value of the Frank against the dollar. But while the government was able to print more money to keep the economy afloat a little longer and prepare the nation for the next war, there was nothing that could prepare the Jews for what was to come. Capitalistic assimilationism, socialist Zionism, or isolationist orthodoxism - whatever you call it, a Jew devoid of his mission is always going to have trouble. Flamethrowers anyone?

Episode 18 - Party like it's 1930

Episode 18 - Party like it's 1930

Tolstoy said that everyone thinks to change the world but nobody thinks to change themselves. But what if your life depended on it? would you change then? Can the most stubborn people on earth look at one of its most painful episodes and draw new lessons? Although it was recorded mid 2020, this episode was eerily prophetic in anticipating the meteoric rise of antisemitism we see today. As we muster the courage to discuss the Holocaust, we look for disturbing connections between the dissolution of German Jews in 1930 and the dissolution of American Jews 90 years later. Can Jews change their identity? Can Jews be anything but who nature intended them to be? Are we doomed to repeat the mistakes of the past? Why did Bari Weiss resign? And what happens if we replace the true concept of the Messiah with the false Messiah of "being like everyone else"? #Israel #jews #jewish #antisemitism #thetribe #judaism #zionism #repeat #1930

Episode 17 - A positive and a negative make light

This is part three on the birth of Zionism and the relationships between Jews in Europe at the turn of the 19th century. The world is not a nice place but if you have a desire for unity, then maybe, just maybe, you have a little Jew in you. Why is it so hard for us to accept the conditions that led to the birth of Zionism? Why is it so difficult to connect with someone when you disagree? How come it takes so much effort to get off our a$$#s and fight for a good change and why is it that when people do it, they almost always get co-opted by some higher, not-as-good interests? How do you explain that fact that Jews are always at the forefront of every revolution and every social change yet, like with the women's march, end up being shunned by their comrades sooner or later and accused of the very same things they set out to abolish? What are we not doing right? A positive and a negative do make light but they need connection in the middle to make that happen! Isn't this the Jew Function?

Episode 16 - Everybody’s right, except we’re not right together

The moment the gates of the shtetl were thrown open by the Tzar, there was nothing keeping the Jews of Eastern Europe together. Why do some Jews feel compelled to keep to the religious tradition while others become hopeless social revolutionaries? Is this because we intuitively feel the plight of the oppressed? Or is it an unconscious defense mechanism working to ensure the society we’re in will grow to become diverse enough, inclusive enough, to eventually accept us as first degree citizens? Are e doomed to have our national loyalty questioned as long as Israel is around? How come the different Jewish factions must become sworn enemies and and why does this strange pattern keep repeating itself? How do we break the cycle and create a model Jewish society that can embrace extreme opposites as essential halves of one whole? #revolution #jews #Israel #zionism #Haskala #Enlightenment #unity

Episode 15 - And what came before THAT?!

The state of Israel wouldn’t be born if not for the effects of the holocaust which in turn wouldn’t have happened if not, in part, due to the assimilation attempts of German Jews and the deep schism between them and Orthodox and Zionist Jews, the latter of which wouldn’t have existed if Jews didn’t feel they needed to aspire to return to Israel, which wouldn’t have happened if not for the “Storms in the South” pogroms of 1881, which wouldn’t have started if not for the Jewish role in the revolutions that led to the assassination of Tzar Alexander II, which wouldn’t have happened if not for the mass exodus of Jews from their shtetls into the universities - thanks to said Tzar, which was his attempt to emancipate Jews from their Jewish way of life. Dizzy yet? If we’re not willing to ask what are the causes of the new antisemitism and then what caused that, and what cause that and what caused that… all the way to what did nature ‘want’ when it caused all of this to happen in the first place - we’ll never get to the bottom of this.

Episode 14 - Conspiring to Love The World

Episode 14 - Conspiring to Love The World

They say history repeats itself. But it's not an exact rerun. There's always room for free choice to change the course we're on - but only if we have enough relevant information.  The human-animal was endowed by nature to be a pattern cognition machine,  evaluating the past in real-time, to predict a good positive outcome in the future. The events of the first days of 2021 and the reactions from the ruling class will soon follow a familiar pattern as they did 80 years ago and 500 years ago before that when Jewish allegiance is questioned and Jewish Conversos took part in the undoing of the largest Jewish concentration outside of Israel since the time of the first temple. And no amount of kicking, screaming and pleading innocence will help, since nature demands and we must respond in kind.  Join us as we wrap up the golden age in Spain with the famous Alhambra decree and subsequent expulsion and elimination of the Jewish community in the Iberian peninsula.  #jew #jewish #antisemitism #anti-semitism #israel #judaism #ancienthistory #zionism #patternrecognition #jewishconspiracy #conversos #cryptojews

Episode 13 - Inquire Within

Episode 13 - Inquire Within

What's a crypto Jew and why is the very idea freaking people out? Why were Jews expelled, banished and sent out from over 800 places in the last 2000 years? Can we prevent the next big expulsion or worse? To find out, travel back in time with us to the dawn of the Spanish inquisition in the late 1400's. Indeed, in the Jewish collective consciousness, before the Holocaust the expulsion from Spain was the second only to the destruction of the temple. But the events that preceded that historic ejection bear striking similarities to the events in 1930's Europe and, not surprisingly, to the events in 2020's United States. If we learn to read the signs, connect the dots, and see the patterns, we can predict the near future with a certain degree of confidence. Enough to take notice and try something new in our never ending war on Jew hatred and self-hating Jewishness.  For best results, start from episode 1.

Episode 12 - The people of the paradox

“Why does he make us feel the questions if he’s not going to give us any answers?” asks Larry Gopnik in the Cohen brothers's A Serious Man.  It feels like it's the story of our people, the perfect  Schadenfreude, a bitter-sweet mystery that never lets us revel in one state alone. A life lived under the constant threat of annihilation, where every good fortune that visits us is shadowed by a terrible misfortune. Is the solution to cling to the good and hope for the best? Or is nature playing a game with us and our proud individual American spirit is somehow blinding us to the real answer? can we rise to the challenge? Can we end the cycle? #antisemitism #anti-semitism #pocast #jewish

Episode 11 - The politics of LOVE

Episode 11 - The politics of LOVE

Some 2000 years ago, a gentile joined the budding Jewish nation to become the greatest teacher that ever lived. He had 24,000 students and he taught one rule: love your fellow man as you love yourself. "As yourself", meaning you love yourself more than anything else, so love this person next to you more than anything including yourself. But Akiva didn't teach a moral code, he taught a reality hack. So what prevented Jews in the times of the second temple from exercising love to save themselves back then and do we have a chance of finding love between us now when not only the fate of Israel is at stake, but the fate of the entire world.

Episode 10 - Why can't we all just get along?

Episode 10 - Why can't we all just get along?

The bloody great revolt marked the end of the age of antiquity in the history of the Jews and the beginning of life in exile. But what actually took place inside the walls of Jerusalem in those last moments before the Romans marched in, will make your stomach turn. Unfounded hatred paved the road to the destruction of the 2nd temple with the bodies of our brothers and sisters. And the scary part is that the parallels to our time are beyond coincidental: political polarization, extreme social allergy, sedition by violent militias, snubbing local laws, false social influencers, and a world at a historical turning point. Could it be that when we unleash our inherent power in the wrong direction we invoke such fear in the hearts of the nations of the world that their only logical response is to try and extricate this toxic element from their midst? What if we could harness that same destructive energy but used it to power a totally new reality instead?

Episode 9 - A gym and a theater on every street corner - what's wrong with that picture?

If Jews were not meant to be rulers, kings, and conquerors then what WERE they meant to be? Why was the victory of the Maccabees doomed from the start and, really, is there really a problem with philosophizing while hot tubbing in a gymnasium? It feels like we Jews aren’t supposed to have it good for too long but why? What is behind that recurring pattern and can we break the chain that separates us from everyone else?

Episode 8 - Prisoners of our own narratives

What if the famous saying uttered during most Jewish holidays was actually "We tried to kill each other, then they tried to kill us, we won, let’s eat!"? What if Hanukkah wasn't the sweet festive week we were sold on as kids but actually a memory of a moment in our history that was anything but ? Something happened at 161BCE that is still happening today inside each and every person. It's happening inside of you right now, an epic struggle between two world views that holds the keys to the temple—not some mythical structure of wood and stone but a higher state of consciousness that is available to us right here, right now. Latke anyone?
