The Jewish Geography Podcast
Jewish Geography is an ongoing discussion about Torah, Judaism and 'news of the Jews' in the Land of Israel. Some episodes explore Jewish history, some delve into the weekly Torah reading (the parshah), some look at the news, and many address deep issues within Jewish thought and life. The tie that binds them together is that every subject is addressed with depth and sensitivity, and no punches are pulled. If you prefer, you can also watch the podcasts as video on youtube.
