The Rebbe’s deep knowledge and analysis of the situation in Israel and its defense and security needs are legendary. Did you ever wish you were in the room to hear it for yourself? Over 20 years ago, in summer 5740 – 1980, Israeli radio broadcaster, Motti Eden came to interview the Rebbe for Israeli radio station, Kol Yisrael. As a true journalist, Motti brought in a small tape recorder to record the conversation in Yechidus.
The conversation lasted about 20 minutes and they discussed a wide range of topics, including the sharp rise of fanaticism amongst the Islamic youth and the declining spirit of the Jewish Israeli youth.
Motti was recently interviewed about the fascinating encounters he had with the Rebbe. During the interview, Motti gave the original recording of the yechidus to the JEM team to be digitally restored.
The interview with Motti Eden and the recording of the Yechidus were featured in JEM’s new release, Faithful and Fortified, Volume II: Israel’s Journalists, sponsored by Rabbi Joseph and Stera Gutnick of Melbourne, Australia.
